Technologies are 'eating' the world, and the demand of date scientists is significantly increasing in the result

Current the IT field is of huge interest to those, who want to learn a new, up-to-date profession. The opportunities in the IT sector are enormous, but if you want to gain a profession, which is currently at its peak, and there is a huge demand of professionals in the field, then you should think about data science. The scarcity of data scientists is an issue not only in Armenia. In the whole world the demand of data scientists is significantly higher than the number of available specialists.
