Professionals in Big Data may be called data scientists, data analysts, information engineers, or any one of a number of different titles. In the years since Value Colleges’ first UX degree ranking – one of the first to consider HCI as an emerging discipline – the field of human-computer interaction and interaction design has exploded.
