Data Literacy may be an important skill for everyone to have, but the level of need is always unique to each individual. Some may need advanced technical skills in machine learning algorithms, while others may just need to be able to understand the basics. Regardless of where anyone sits on the skills spectrum, the data community can help accelerate their careers.
