Redpill me on "data scientists".
Some of them work at my company but I've never had any direct contact with any of them, however from what I've seen, it seems that they're literally not doing anything -- ever. Yet they seem like the smuggest motherfuckers ever with this condescending attitude -- they will look at everyone else like they're beneath their level for some reason.
What's the point of them? They aren't programmers, they aren't system engineers, when my friend told one of them that they're only gathering statistics they all got offended, so what exactly do they do?
Is mathematics a game for young men?

Hey /sci/, undergrad baby here. I'm currently in my sophomore year doing a double major in math and cs. I was reading Hardy's "A Mathematician's Apology" yesterday, and I was wondering what you guys think of it.
Personally I think there's some truth to freshness, spontaneity, and power of youth, but like most things in life, the lack thereof doesn't wholly determine what you can and cannot do. That could just be my naivety and wishful thinking, though.
