It is often said that the life of a data scientist is disproportionately-dominated by acquiring, labeling, transforming, and feeding data into these models. This is often not the exception but the rule and is also true here at Pathos where we deal with a large amount of data. With such data comes the inherent responsibility of protecting this data, ensuring the use of this data is compliant with local regulations, and determining what parts of the data are useful.
