So much for a new take on an old joke. The real answer is about six figures, information I recently came across in a report released earlier this spring: Burtch Works Executive Recruiting survey, Salaries of Data Scientists. The median base salary of data scientist managers is $160,000, it says, while individual contributors average about $120,000. The information comes from 171 data scientists for whom the recruiting firm has complete and current information. Whether a data scientist is at a lower or higher job level, across the board he or she is doing financially better than other Big Data professionals, the report shows.
Additional Funding For Elasticsearch To Help Company Complement Its RealTime Search And Analytics Stack
Elasticsearch – whose Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana products for discovering and extracting insights from structured and unstructured data were discussed earlier this year here – has raised $70 million in Series C financing from New Enterprise Associates (NEA).

“Nearly all companies, start-ups and Fortune 500 enterprises alike, need to be able to slice and dice rapidly expanding data volumes in real time,” says Steven Schuurman, co-founder and CEO. The funding, Schuurman says, will be applied to enhancing sales, marketing and support personnel and efforts, as well as investing in development to build more complementary products that work with the ELK stack.
“Ultimately, this round of funding will help us get to our goal, faster, of making the ELK stack the de facto platform for businesses to gain actionable insights from their data,” he says.

Luca Scagliarini of Expert System recently wrote, “Semantic technology is able to understand a text in a way that emulates human comprehension of information… More importantly, it also comprehends conversational language and all its ambiguities (slang, abbreviations, multi-language text) to arrive at an understanding of not just words, but the user’s intention. A good example of this at work can be seen in the recent analysis that the social research firm Sociometra conducted using over 30,000 comments made on social media of tourist destinations (museums, monuments, etc.) and general comments about the city of Rome, Italy. The analysis showcases the technology’s power for analyzing unstructured text and its strength in establishing connections between not just words, but more importantly, concepts.” Read more
Mark van Rijmenam of Smart Data Collective recently wrote, “The past decades organisations have been working with relational databases to store their structured data. In the big data era however, these types of databases are not sufficient anymore.

Supporting interoperability between heterogeneous IoT entities, playing a part in driving much-needed application agility and adaptability through model-driven computing, and helping businesses cope with understanding and analyzing the influx of Big, and often unstructured, Data generated not just by humans but now by devices – all provide use cases for semantic tech.
