Is Data Science in a bubble right now? I see DS programs cropping up in every University and thousands graduating each year but it's increasingly becoming impossible to break into DS for a newbie.

Most of data science anymore is knowing how to use libraries and canned algorithms that real data scientists already wrote.

Data Science will always have value. At it’s core it’s about predicting things based on given data. However with all the tools out there it’s getting easier and easier to implement

i think of it like how every person was "really trying to get into Big Data" 5 years ago. We are at the peak of the hype cycle. Most of these folks will chase the next shiny object (looking at you, blockchain).

Totally think it’s a bubble my university stopped offering my old major MIS and changed it to Business Intelligence (basically data science) actual data science degree only offered as master they didn’t even offer the masters when I was in uni and I graduated 2013....

The same thing is happening in my University. They sent a survey asking about which Data Science courses to include in our MIS program

Well it does make sense given the sheer amounts of data we generate. Also, data science is an umbrella term— not every data scientist is an ML engineer. Many “data scientists” are really glorified data analysts. In an increasingly uncertain world, someones gotta unearth insights through the chaos. So train and employ ppl to do this. Im a SWE by training and working as DS. Most of what i do daily, ~80%, is literally cleaning and shaping data.

Hi All, I recently interviewed at Amazon and Google for software engineer and passed both interviews. I have an offer on the table from Amazon but with Google I am officially in team matching and my recruiter tells me that the queue is pretty backed up now and it can take a long time. My question is should I take the Amazon offer now or decline Amazon and hold out for Google? I have heard that Google has better wlb/benefits. But I'm scared to decline Amazon without a guaranteed job offer.
