Data Science: Top 100 Influencers, Brands and Publications

by | Apr 18, 2018 | Influencer Lists,

Data science is the science of extracting knowledge or insights from data in various forms. From finance, to marketing, tech to energy, data science is used in every industry. At the heart of mining data and building data product is the ability to view and understand the data correlations and find solutions to problems. With more and more data becoming available, many companies are finding themselves buried in data but are not able to take advantage of it. A data scientist can help companies store, process and leverage this data to gain insights.

We analysed nearly 30M data science posts from 9th April 2017 – 9th April 2018, looking at social influence as well as authority by analysing how much influencers are referenced on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Forums, Blogs, News and Tumblr content. These influencers were then identified and added to our Influencer Relationship Management software (IRM) to generate the influencer rankings and network map.

Disclaimer: As ever with these lists, it must be stressed that the ranking is by no means a definitive measurement of influence, as there is no such thing. The brands, individuals and publications listed here are undoubtedly influential when it comes to driving discussion around data science.

The PageRank based methodology we use to extract influencers on a particular topic takes into account the number and quality of contextual references that a user receives. These calculations also take into account a user’s relevance (number of posts on topic), reach (number of followers) and reference (how often they are referenced by other influencers). If you want to learn more, please read our article that outlines How to identify your target influencers.
