What are the differences between a Data Scientist and Machine Learning Engineer

    A data scientist’s key responsibility is to understand business problems and develop one or more machine learning algorithms to solve them. Then, the specification of the ML models is handed over to ML engineers to be optimised and deployed to a large scale. In terms of skill set, both roles share many similarities such as communicating with confidence, version control and being proficient with cloud services. Conversely, both roles require vastly different domain knowledge; data scientists should be strong in statistics and business acumen, whereas ML engineers should be proficient in fundamental software engineering skills.
