Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is data storytelling?

    Data storytelling is the term used to describe translating data analyses into layman’s terms so businesses can make a decision moving forward. Since more and more data is being generated through digital tools and apps today, businesses have a trove of data right at their fingertips. Not everyone is a numbers genius, which is why these numbers need to be turned into a story that everyone can understand. Naturally, this is a skill that is in high demand today.

  • What is data visualization?

    Data visualization involves the creation and study of the visual representation of data. A data visualizer will create statistical graphs, plots, and information graphics that businesses can use in business plans, investor proposals, presentations, and more. It is essentially the simplification of data in a visual manner that tells the whole story from start to finish at just a glance. Both data visualization and data storytelling fall under the study of data science.

  • What is the future of data science?

    Considering that data science is an integral part of big data processing, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality, it’s safe to say that the future of data science is only going to spread and expand rapidly. Right now, there is a gap between the number of data scientists in the world, and the amount of open positions.
