Data Science In the Real World

While building and operating Databricks Cloud we have observed that, in practice, Data Scientists can be divided into three distinct categories or personas. While each persona works with data, they differ dramatically in the problems they solve, tools they use, and deliverables they produce. In this talk we will define and discuss these personas, provide a real-world example of each, as well as relate them to each other and to the decisions we’ve made while building Databricks Cloud.
