Professions as Data Analyst and Data Scientist are booming thanks to their important role in the development of AI-related services.
If you are thinking of taking your first step into the world of Artificial Intelligence, acquire some of the most sought-after digital skills through the free digital training programme Conecta Empleo.
According to our Mapa del Empleo, in the last 3 months almost 3,000 analyst and data scientist professionals have been in demand in Spain.
Artificial Intelligence is revolutionising and changing the world, but did you know that the role of analysts and data scientists is fundamental to the development of solutions and services based on it? This relevance has caused the demand for people specialised in both profiles to increase significantly in the last year.
In fact, according to our Mapa del Empleo (a tool that analyses the IT job offers on tecnoempleo.com), in the last 3 months almost 3,000 analyst and data scientist professionals have been in demand in Spain.
But what functions do they perform that make them so necessary in this digital era?
Data Analysts are responsible for extracting and analysing information from thousands or millions of data. They must implement statistical and learning techniques to find patterns in the data. It is usually a complex and time-consuming process that can take many hours to get the right dataset for the model to be implemented.
Compared to a data analyst, data scientists may be more focused on developing new tools and methods to solve complex problems. In some cases, job openings for data scientists may require the same responsibilities as a data analyst and vice versa.
