What is a machine learning data scientist? Many companies struggle with the concept of what machine learning is and what it does. Machine Learning is quickly becoming a barrier to entry for a product. Companies will soon not consider a piece of software or app that does not have machine learning built into it. But Machine Learning skills are extremely hard to find.

Many companies are trying to fill the need using a regular data scientist (also hard to find). This session will discuss the necessary skill sets of a Machine Learning data scientist, the parallel data scientist skills which can be cross trained, and how to manage those people once they get the right training. It will also cover the value proposition of ML and how it applies to your business.
