Data Scientists bring meaning to the newly acquired flood of data
An even more new profession, which only emerged through digitization, is that of data scientist.

A scientific article, Oxford study...
The Oxford study, which examined 702 occupations, defined the scale as "0" (non-computable) and "1" (computerisable). The study is very extensive and would go beyond the scope of this article. For this reason we ask you from p. 57 to study the professions - you will be amazed.
