What are the responsibilities of a data scientist?

The responsibilities of data scientist are to understand historical data, and present a correct picture of ‘what has currently happened in business?’ Once this is done, the analysis shifts to predicting the future i.e. ‘what could happen going forward’ and finally prescript prudent strategies to ensure that the future happenings are aligned to the priorities & targets of business.

Technically, this includes data cleansing & preparation for statistical analysis, application of statistical models on the prepared data, churning out insights & inferences from the data, and finally visualizing the findings in a readable format to business.
