Nowadays, we live and work alongside billions of pieces of data. Every piece of information that swirls around every day has to be interpreted and understood.
That’s what data scientists do.
Unveil the mysteries of data, so we can see the bigger picture!
The problem with data is that there’s just so much of it. And so many types.
Data science comes down to three specific skills. We collect and organize the information into databases. Next, we design models and algorithms based on that data to get a better handle on context, so we can predict situations or behaviors.
We study artificial intelligence extensively, particularly machine learning. The goal is to automate data handling and analysis in real time. Finally, we build APIs that allow us to visualize and interact with the data. As data scientists, we collaborate with lots of different teams, based on their data-analysis needs.
We work on very complex subjects, we’re constantly working with other specialists in order to pool our expertise and apply it to topics like cybersecurity, fraud or modeling.
We’re constantly expanding our knowledge thanks to publications from open-source research.
Another aspect of our job is helping to recruit new team members. Take the blue pill, you’ll continue to use the Internet just like before.
That is, sharing pictures of cats on Facebook and posting selfies with filters. Take the red pill, and the mysteries of data science will be unveiled…
We test the skills of candidates through data challenges. Exploring the data world holds infinite possibilities.
At Société Générale, we’re at the heart of innovation. We work on real-life topics that impact millions of people.
