Abstract: Data Scientists are the masters of Big Data. Analyzing masses of versatile data leads to insights that, in turn, may connect to successful business strategies, crime prevention, or better health care just to name a few. Big Data is primarily approached as mathematical and technical challenge. This may lead to technology design that enables useful insights from Big Data. However, this technology-driven approach does not meet completely and consistently enough the variety of information consumer requirements. To catch up with the versatility of user needs, the technology aspect should probably be secondary. If we adopt a user-driven approach, we are more in the position to cope with the individual expectations and exigencies of information consumers. This article takes information discovery as the overarching paradigm in data science and explains how this perspective change may impact the view on the profession of the data scientist and, resulting from that, the curriculum for the educa tion in data science. It reflects the result from discussions with companies participating in our student project cooperation program. These results are groundwork for the development of a curriculum framework for Applied Data Science. (More)
