To Stay or Consult

Field Cady, Data Scientist at Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence (AI2).

Some data scientists work for one employer on a single large, long-lived project. Others function as consultants who move quickly between different projects, datasets, and even industries. Each of these paths can make for a rewarding career (or first job) in data science, but they have their own pros and cons. This podcast will compare the skills they teach and require, the best ways to approach problems, and the realities of the day-to-day work.
