Director interviewed by Forbes

What is a Data Scientist? That was the question put to the Institute’s director, Dr. Michael Rappa, in a recent interview with Forbes contributing writer, Dan Woods. Data science has emerged as the latest way to describe the ongoing quest to master the skill of drawing insights from vast quantities and varieties of data—sometimes called “big data”—which is core to the mission of the Institute. The interview with Dr. Rappa is the latest in a Forbes series on the subject with the country’s leading thinkers and practitioners in data science.
