“Someone with a brain for math, finesse with computers, the eyes of an artist and more. … an intense curiosity to understand what’s behind the data. … to show where patterns emerge. …”
A quite interesting story by Yuki Noguchi at NPR: http://www.npr.org/2011/11/30/142893065/the-search-for-analysts-to-make-sense-of-big-data
Inspired by the above article and the quotations listed I wonder: how difficult is to understand the personal story of guy in comparison to the discovery of patterns in big data. May be personal data are big data too. Micro-patterns vs Macro-patterns… Is the same story?
