While our Bachie Matt uses a lot of fancy words, it is important to note that a 'data scientist' is still an analyst that solves problems within the fields of business and IT, not space.
Hoping to clarify further that he is not a 'banker' (nor a working astrophysicist), Matt joined the Kyle and Jackie O show this morning to explain his work as a data scientist.
"Before I went in filming I was working as an astrophysicist, that was all correct," Matt told the KIIS FM hosts.
"I was still employed as an astrophysicist during filming [and] I finished up some stuff after filming, then I moved into a position as a data scientist.”
“So you’re still using your scientific brain?” asked Kyle.
"So I started working with data science consultancy called Quantum. In the two months that I've worked for them, I think I’ve had two maybe three meetings at one of the NAB offices and this was sufficient to create a story that apparently I’m a banker."
Well, I guess we have our answer, Matt is in fact a data scientist.
