My super geek CEO friend who went to school at Stanford University has this to say as he perused the list of the #TheYellow104
"Looking at the list there are less than 24 "data scientists" Most are academics with Economics degrees. The majority of the data scientists are employed by Talas a PLDT subsidiary where the title of data scientist seems to be more of a title than an academic credential" Nyikes!! Kaya naman pala eh!
Here at Silicon Valley, Data Science is an emerging field. So many new programs abound and you can call yourself a "Data Scientist" after a short 10-week program! Unless you have serious statistics, calculus, mathematics background when you take that program, you probably aren't going to be that good.
