From theory perspective, understand basic stats theory. Too many CS background morons building machine learning models without understanding the theory first. From a skillset and market value perspective, pick up data engg skills, you will be much more effective in industry.

There are statistical concepts that are critical from a solution development context. One thing I’ve noticed statisticians do more rigorously is the observation of biases. For instance, user data is inherently biased towards those most engaged with a given product or service. Things like survival biases, look forward biases, etc... aren’t quantified but certainly are relevant. The question, “is it worth developing models on this data?” is a more frequent thought.

want to get good! Any advice is helpful. Currently proficient enough in Python, have done classification,regression,clustering across several industries and have a few models in production affecting businesses (low scale, X thousand predictions per month, binary classification) No experience with deep learning, image/video,NLP and frankly feel out of depth given my lib arts background on tackling those at clients

What level are you and location? We got lots of resources and a solid contingent of data scientists that can help with their perspective.

You can learn programming on the side easier than statistical or mathematical theory. For that reason, I value my stats masters. As I learn more programming and gain business exp, I’m continuing to unlock latent skills while non-mathematical counterparts seem to hit a wall.

Really get into the stats side, and not just the math, but learning to approach the problem and understand uncertainty in data. The programming languages are just tools.

Anyone else who finds it unfair and disrespectful that we have a policy to not put junior consultants‘ names on our published papers and articles, even though they might be the ones who did the research and wrote most of the content? Our competitors are not doing it and there seems to be no good reasons to me.
