In this video, I look at the difference between a data scientist and an ML engineer! We’re gonna look at five different things:

1) How do you define these two roles and what are they?
2) What are the educational requirements for each of them?
3) How much money do each of those roles make?
4) What does the future look like for each of these roles?
5) And then, how exactly do you decide which of these two to get into?

    I should probably be a ML engineer. Don't really like telling story.

    Very interesting video, maybe the clearest I've seen so far at breaking down what exactly these positions are (from someone who knows their sh…)
    Thanks 🙌🏻🙌🏻

    I’m currently a data science and analytics student been having a nose at machine learning as it sounds super interesting thank you for your video!

    Thanks million for your comprehensive explanation! It was brilliant. I suppose, in storytelling, you are the best. Thanks a lot

    Richard, what about Data Science as the name of the general curriculum in the future (analogous to Computer Science), covering different company roles such as MLE, data engineers etc. (such as CS produces developers, QA engineers etc.)? The rising DS curricula at universities point into this direction.

    Good info. Thanks Richard.

    Can you please do a video on a double masters
    where a person does an CS undergrad,
    a one year masters in Data Analytics.
    Then an additional one year AI and Machine Learning masters.

    Thanks.

    If i have a cs bachelors and i want to be an ml engineer, would you recommend a statistics masters or a cs degree that focuses on ml?

    Nice content! Im taking my BSc in Data Science at Lisbon-Portugal. The salaries in U.S are 5x time higher than in Portugal. We earn like 22k a year (in average), it's just stupid. I hope to get a chance to work in the U.S, you guys are really getting paid 🤣

    Can you do a video about all the tech that you use in your Data Science projects?

    Keep the great work!

    Hi Richard! Thanks a lot for your channel! Very interesting for absolute beginners like myself 🙂 Right now I am digging through several books/tutorials. I can feel my progress in ML and understanding of the field. But here is the problem: I feel that I really need the community of learners and real projects to work on.
    But how to offer one's basic knowledge of data science and ML algorithms so that others would find it helpful even for free? Right now it seems that even volunteer positions are looking for super professionals. It would be very interesting to hear (or see) your suggestions on this problem. Hope it makes sense! Thanks in advance!

    Great video. Thank you for making this. I'm currently a junior CS major so I'm currently trying to figure out what exactly I want to do. Do you think you will make a video about grad school? That is an option I am currently looking into.
