Presented by Daniel Magestro, Ph.D., International Institute for Analytics

Companies in every industry are continually increasing their usage of large data sets and advanced statistical methods to understand customers and markets, improve operations, and forecast future business needs. The corresponding business demand for skilled analytical talent and "data scientists" has created a large talent gap for many companies that is predicted to surpass 100,000 nationally. Much of the talent gap arises from the hybrid skill set needed by data scientists that combines problem solving, technical, and communication skills. I will argue that the uniquely broad skill set of research scientists, and particularly experimental physicists in large collaborations, can bridge the growing talent gap for truly innovative companies.
