Top Data Science Leaders on LinkedIn in 2022
I made a huge list of Data science experts who post educational content on LinkedIn
This is a different kind of a project I’ve been busy with this week. I wasn’t satisfied with Top Data Science listicles on the web, so I decided to do one better. It took me uh, a bit more time than I expected (in the area of 40 hours).
How to Follow the Top Data Science Thought Leaders
As a professional in 2022, you can follow (and super-follow) any Creator on LinkedIn and the top datascience influencers are no exception. This enables you to get a constant stream of posts (mostly text) and Newsletters that can resonate with your passion whether it’s datascience, programming, A.I., machine learning, data engineering or anything related.
Many datascience top lists aren’t very profound and don’t actually give you an easy great list that permanently upgrades your Linkedin experience! That is actually what I am trying to do here. To follow someone on the app or desktop, just follow them and look for the notification bell (a super-follow) and click on it. It’s that easy!
The reason I say this is it immediately transforms your LinkedIn Feed into a power-house of datascience intelligence and inspiration and makes it more of a joy to sign in to LinkedIn’s app or follow one of their Newsletters. If there’s one major takeaway from this list, that should be it. The power of the super-follow is real on LinkedIn in 2022.
First follow the Creator
Then click on the notification bell to make sure you get notified when they make a post.
Finally this post took me forever to research and build, so please kindly share it.
You can get notified about posts if you prefer.
I’m not myself a data scientist so my ranking of these people is not aiming to be objective, but I will use things like followers on LinkedIn and the usefulness of their posts as a rough general guide.
So take this as just a list of people I personally like to follow who talk about #datascience on a regular basis. Maybe you will enjoy this list as well and if you do, please don’t hesitate to tell us who your favorite Datascience Creators on LinkedIn are in a comment below.
This list has been researched with due diligence and I guarantee it’s very global and inclusive. This list covers Creators from Thailand to Norway and more. It’s designed to be useful for data science enthusiasts.

The original list on LinkedIn covers 65 people you should follow if data science is a core interest. Thanks for reading!
If you want to support me so I can keep writing, please don’t hesitate to give me tips, a paid subscription or some donation. With a conversion rate of less than two percent, this Newsletter exists mostly by the grace of my goodwill (passion for A.I.) & my own experience of material poverty as I try to pivot into the Creator Economy.
Anyways I hope you enjoyed the topic, that’s all for today.
