Data Scientist Interviews - Vol 1, April 2014

Over the past few months we have been lucky enough to conduct in-depth interviews with 15 different Data Scientists for our blog. The 15 interviewees have varied roles and focus areas: from start-up founders to academics to those working at more established companies; working across healthcare, energy, retail, agriculture, travel, dating, SaaS and more...

In case you've missed any, here is a recap of the interviews to date with their relevant links as well as a pdf of everything in one place to make them more easily accessible to the community.

Thanks again to all the interviewees! Looking forward to the next 15!...
