Right now there is a lot of hype for data science. Everyone is learning it. There are lots of courses and boot camps being offered. Unlike software engineering, however, are data scientists required to have a specialization in a specific domain? For example, if you wanted to be data scientist in and work on topics in biology, would you need to know a lot about biology?

  • $\begingroup$ Data Science requires some basic specialisations. You need knowledge of computer science, mathematics specifically statistics and a bit of calculus as well. Data scientists process and work upon data which comes from various branches such as biology, literature, CS etc. $\endgroup$ – Shubham Panchal Feb 27 at 2:44
