Q: We have a shortage of data science. When will colleges begin offering degrees in data science?
A: There are a number of universities that are starting to create these, [but] universities don’t move at the speed of light. I think all the pieces are in place: You have programs that are being cranked up at places like Berkeley and Harvard and MIT and so on. You have some of the more traditional analytics programs of the past at places like NC State and Indiana starting to say, “How about if we add a little data science content to the more traditional analytics content we were already offering?”
