A Gateway to the world of Data Science

2 min read

Every year, Glassdoor releases a report based on each job’s overall satisfaction in the US. Data Scientist warranted the second place two years in a row. The score is determined by key factors such as the number of job openings, the job satisfaction rating and median annual base salary.

With the prevalent job openings related to data science or data analysis, one might wonder what does it take to land a lucrative job like that.

Among all the data science software such as Python, R, and Hadoop, “Statistical Analysis System” developed by SAS Institute is probably the easiest to maneuver. For those who have no programming experience, SAS provides a first glimpse into the arena of data science with functions such as advanced analytics, data management, and business intelligence for users to acquire basic skills.

No matter you work in IT, telecommunications, or consumer service, SAS analytic skill is a coveted one in order to get into the heart of the business and forecast future trends.

With “SAS” skills , the world of opportunity awaits  

Data scientists evidently are in incredibly high demand because it is no longer restricted to tech giants. The hiring frenzy spreads across from SMEs to start-ups as well.

According to a recent PayScale study:

Monthly salary of a mid-level data scientist: $45-50K

Average increment with SAS skills: 17%

The monthly salary of a mid-level data scientist is way higher than the median wage of $15k in Hong Kong. If that sounds appealing enough for you, jumpstart your data science career by enrolling in SAS courses. Tech academies such as SAS Institute, General Assembly, and Venturenix Lab offer various courses that are specifically designed for people of different levels of tech skills.  

Learning new things is never a waste of time. Why not step one step ahead and give yourself a competitive edge?

十年內將會被 AI (人工智能) 取代的職業

以前我們說「電腦會否取代人類」,但現在我們說「AI (人工智能)會否取代人類」。前者多年前經已被廣泛地討論,多年來「電腦」一直協助人類工作做得更好。直至 AI (人工智能) 的出現,我們再次響起「會否被取代」這個警號。  以往我們會書寫信件與朋友來往,快則兩天,慢則十天八天。現在我們只要利用科技,便能與朋友即時通訊。人類對科技經已變得非常依賴,沒有再好得過「既方便又快捷」。  科技有很多好處,不僅減少過程中的複雜性、避免錯誤,還能減少資源浪費。更重要的是現今我們均追求「速度」,我們比起以前更沒耐性,什麼都要「即時」。  科技融入生活細節,加速了我們的生活節奏。而科技技術更不斷進化,功能更上一層樓,講求「自動化」,比起「方便」更加「方便」。自動化的科技使人類生活逐步走向 AI (人工智能) 的時代,AI 的設計能夠輔助一些重複性的工作、複雜性不高的職業。我們試試留意身邊的生活環境,便能察覺到其實...
