Competencies for Informatics Professionals?
August 27, 2019
What competencies in data science and machine learning are required
for informatics professionals? How do the competencies vary by job
role and other factors? This panel brought together informatics
educators from three different countries to discuss the approaches
of their educational programs to data science and machine learning.
They described their efforts in defining competencies for different
types of informatics professionals, developing curricula to meet
such competencies, and evaluating student success in achieving them.
