The Figure Eight 2018 Data Scientist Report

Figure Eight has been taking the pulse of the data science community for quite a while now, and a lot has changed since our original Data Science Report in 2015. Machine learning projects are multiplying and more and more data – 2.5 quintillion bytes of data each day – is required to power them. Understanding what those involved think about the technology they’re pioneering is important.

In this year’s report we look at:

  • Job satisfaction. Data scientists don’t just like their job, they love it.
  • The data and tools that data scientists are working within 2018.
  • Ethical issues around building and deploying AI.
  • Algorithmic bias. Are we still in denial?
