Jed Dougherty presents the trailer of the upcoming Data Science Pioneers documentary about the passionate data scientists driving us toward technological revolution.

Cut through the hype with Data Science Pioneers and see what it really means to be a data scientist. Even though the name is new, the role has a long lineage in statistics and information sciences. And while the challenges data scientists now face occur on an unprecedented scale, they stand on the shoulders of technical and ethical quandaries that came before.

Real data scientists contextualize the role and why they love it, while exploring the concerns and challenges to come.
