As technology continues to develop, demand keeps growing for data scientists in hi-tech and in general. In addition to the national shortage of software developers and computer science alumni, the Israeli economy and industry show a pronounced shortage in the specific field of data science. Companies from multiple sectors seek to fill data science roles with people properly and comprehensively trained for the profession. Thus, increasing the number of data science alumni will have a positive impact on Israeli economy. These alumni can take on roles in data analysis, data science, statistical inference, and more – with a vast wealth of job opportunities covering most of the economy, from medicine to business, hi-tech, and even
fields like social sciences and humanities.
