Data Engineer vs Data Scientist: the Evolution of Aggressive Species


Data ScienceTech Institute is very excited to announce that our brilliant Dean, Sebastien Corniglion, has published an article posted on the well-known platform KDNuggets. The article studies at how data scientists and data engineers harmonise and coexist.
