The presentation below by Carlos Somohano (founder of Data Science London) provides the best description of a Data Scientist that I've seen in some time:

Highlights include:

  • On Slide 14, a history of the Data Science
  • On Slide 22, the essential skills of data scientists (and a platypus)
  • On Slide 26, 10 things data scientists do
  • On Slide 27, a data scientist toolkit (including R, of course)
  • On Slides 37-38, the data science process
  • On Slides 44-52, examples of data products
