Anaconda Releases 2020 State of Data Science Survey Results
AUSTIN, Texas, June 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Although the hype around machine learning and AI is giving way to a more realistic view, enterprises and institutions still have work to do to help the data science discipline achieve maturity and deliver sustained business value. These findings and others are covered in a new report released today by Anaconda, Inc., provider of the world’s most popular data science platform.
Titled “The State of Data Science 2020: Moving from Hype Toward Maturity,” the report explores industry trends across a variety of topics ranging from preferred tools and languages, to open-source security practices, to concerns around bias in machine learning (ML). 2,360 people from more than 100 countries participated in the online survey between February 12 and April 20, 2020.
Demand for data science talent has been strong in recent years, and even with the recent economic downturn, organizations that have seen positive ROI from data science are likely to maintain their investments in this area. Anaconda’s report provides insight into the practices, concerns and trends that are shaping this key industry, from education to enterprise deployment. Respondents spanned age groups, industries and job functions, allowing for granular analysis of responses across multiple variables.
Among the report’s findings:
“Data science has the ability to be transformational for businesses, but our 2020 survey shows that both organizations and professionals in the space are still in the process of maturing,” said Peter Wang, CEO and co-founder of Anaconda. “From broadening the data science educational curriculum to being more intentional with open-source security, there are clear learnings here for the industry at large to implement in order to improve. We’ve seen positive progress in many of these areas, but there is still work to be done.”
