I recently started working in the data science sector and friends regularly ask me "what's it all about". My son even asks me what it's like to work down a data mine.
After giving the usual explanations about using vast data sets and machine learning to improve outcomes for businesses, research, and medicine, I'm met with looks of veiled pity that say "It must be pretty boring."
But, as you and I know, it isn't. It's the future.
So what are the real-world examples I should be giving to really make my party chatter fizz?
Is it the potential to become a poker millionnaire? The opportunity to find out what makes the ideal husband? Or the ideal mix of gin and tonic?
Please, lend me your wisdom...before my data-ignorant friends fall asleep on me!
