To be obtained urgently!
Produced by Télécom ParisTech, in partnership with AirbusAirbus Defence and Space, a world leader in the aerospace industry, and the consultancy firm Upward Data, this 80-page guide is aimed at students and future students in data science, specialists in the field, companies wishing to recruit them, training and guidance professionals, the curious, in short anyone who wants to discover and better understand this teeming world that has conquered our daily lives.
« Data Scientists! "But what is this? And why so much enthusiasm? Today, "data", the information of all kinds that circulates on the Internet in particular, has taken such a central place in our lives that it concerns each and every one of us. The exclamation mark underlines the incredible effervescence of the field, the passionate enthusiasm of the women and men who are embarking on the exploration of this new world.
As pioneers in France in the field of data science training, Télécom ParisTech and Télécom Evolution wanted to offer a snapshot of the different professions to which these courses lead, in particular by having their teacher-researchers and former students support them.
Let's call him back, Télécom ParisTech training to innovate and undertake in a world that has become digital.

Its curricula graduate engineers, doctors and professionals and attract 55 % of foreign students. Its research offers original and multidisciplinary international expertise in six strategic areas: Big Data, Very Large Networks & Systems, Digital Confidence, Design-Interaction-Perception, Modeling for Digital, Digital Innovation. A school of the IMT (Institut Mines-Télécom), Télécom ParisTech is a founding member of the ParisTech network and is positioned as the Paris-Saclay College of Digital Innovation, whose ambition is to become one of the world's leading innovation clusters.
As for Telecom EvolutionThe IMT (Institut Mines-Télécom), which specializes in digital technology, is the continuing education brand of the IMT (Institut Mines-Télécom) telecom engineering grandes écoles: IMT Atlantique, Télécom ParisTech and Télécom SudParis.

According to the LinkedIn barometer for "Le Monde Campus", young graduates in data science are the profiles most sought after by recruiters French social networking sites and companies are courting these "data scientists" for their skills in terms of digital transformation.
In a interview with Le Monde on May 16thIn 2013, Serge Abiteboul, a researcher at the Institut national de recherche en informatique et en automatique (Inria), and co-author of Terra Data (Editions Le Pommier, 348 p, 13 euros), advocated the emergence of a new training program for "data scientists": "Data science isn't just statistics. It's often very empirical techniques. That's why, in order to achieve a minimum understanding of the profession, you also need to have been confronted with real data from your formative years. The risk of some current training courses is that they are too theoretical. And then, in computer science twenty years ago, you had to know how to design large, very specialised programmes. Today, data scientists write relatively little code: they use toolboxes that are often open source. They may be less good "coders", but they are asked to know how to choose and compose the right software, to understand mathematics and the business environment. It's a job that requires a lot of neurons. »
This Guide brings together the testimonials of 28 professionals from the Telecom ecosystem.
