Back in the early 1990’s I attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and majored in Nutritional Science. I picked this degree because I was obsessed with being a professional athlete. I felt like studying Nutritional Science could give me an extra edge. I was first exposed to research about calorie restriction and aging.
I was also involved in self-experimentation in my Nutritional Biochemistry class. We centrifuged our own blood and calculated LDL, HDL, and total cholesterol levels.
originally published in Forbes, Feb 4, 2019:
There will be no data science job listings in about 10 years, and here is why. There are no MBA jobs in 2019, just like there are no computer science jobs. MBAs, computer science degrees and data science degrees are degrees, not jobs. I believe the reason companies are hiring people into data science job titles is because they recognize there are emerging trends (cloud computing, big data, AI, machine learning), and they want to invest in them.
