The Future of the Data Engineer

Share This Post

Once called the “worst seat at the table” due to the amount of work on their plate, the role of the data engineer has developed into a multitude of offshoots. The rise of cloud computing and warehousing services killed off the database engineer and shifted the focus of data engineers towards managing data performance and reliability. This has further splintered off, giving rise to roles like the analytics engineer, “a role that straddles data engineering and data analytics, and applies an analytical, business-oriented approach to working with data.” Read full article here

Magneto Protein Could Help Magnets Control Brain Circuitry

This groundbreaking research by scientists at the University of Virginia has demonstrated a novel way to control the nervous systems of zebrafish and mice using magnets. This method, called magnetogenetics, involves inserting genetic constructs into neurons to make them sensitive to magnetic fields, providing a more precise and non-invasive way to control and manipulate neural circuits than traditional methods. This could one day revolutionize the treatment of brain disorders in humans. Read full article here
