Abstract: In “Data Science Pioneers”, real data scientists contextualize the role and why they love it while exploring the concerns and challenges to come. “Data Science Pioneers” is proof that data scientists aren’t just data-crazy mathematicians that happen to work in a cutting-edge field; they enjoy their work and want to take on difficult ethical questions, too. They want to make a difference.
For the non-data scientist, “Data Science Pioneers” is still a critical piece of the puzzle that is the future of AI - it’s about getting to know the people that are building systems that affect everyone’s day-to-day lives. Accepting AI as an inevitability is complex and might start with data scientists themselves, but it’s a fundamental change that will affect all and that cannot happen in isolation. “Data Science Pioneers” brings the story that will fuel discussions about not only how to construct a solid foundation for AI, but also a supportive community of those responsible for building it.
