So much so that they are not only broadcast on the Internet but even on television. That’s why it took the professional narrator of video game competitions to appear, like those of FIFA or LoL.

Data Scientist

Data Science is a multidisciplinary field that seeks to extract information from large volumes of data, structured or not. In the past, it was common for our data to be collected manually in surveys, over the phone, etc. But nowadays there are programs that record everything about users without our realizing it and can then draw conclusions or use this data for various purposes. For this reason, there has to be someone who analyzes all this amount of data, “Big Data”, and makes sense of it.

Thomas H. Davenport describes the data scientist as “the hybrid of a data hacker, analyst, communicator and trusted advisor, an extremely powerful and rare combination.” This is why it is one of the highest rated professions in 2020.

And continuing with unmanned vehicles, we move on to self-driving cars which, unlike drones, do not need anyone to control them even from a distance, as they are able to mimic human capabilities thanks to artificial intelligence, analyze and interpret their environment and apply a different behavior. techniques.

While there are different levels of autonomous driving, this area is growing rapidly, and everything indicates that Tesla will be the first to do so. Hence the emergence of this new type of engineer, which will gradually become one of the most popular.
