Perhaps the world is starting to understand that data science is not science at all, it is an art in the truest sense, an artifice, something created by humans (my classical education comes in handy at times.) When I started in Information Technology in the early 1970s the first thing we learned was Garbage In, Garbage out.
Now we are told that collecting garbage and sifting through it is a science? No wonder people are getting sceptical. The first thing the aspiring data professional needs to learn is the difference between data and digital junk.
