Data Science is the “sexiest job of the 21st century,” as per Harvard Business Review. It’s like being a wizard, but your wand is a stylus, your spells are algorithms, and your cauldron is a swirling pool of Big Data. These digital conjurers can predict your next online purchase, forecast the weather, and even speculate how many years it’ll take before your pet hamster runs for public office. Heck, they might even predict that you’re about to roll your eyes at the next joke. Armed with Python, R, and a deluge of data, these modern Merlin types are translating the gibberish of our digital lives into actionable insights—or at least into pie charts that make you go “huh.”

Now, let’s pivot our tables and chart a scatter plot of laughter with Data Science jokes. These jokes are the Ctrl+Alt+Del for a data scientist’s brain, rebooting their overloaded neural networks with humor. Ever heard the one about the data scientist who was excellent at parties? Me neither. But you’ve got to love a classic like, “I’m not a great data scientist, but I’m a mean one.” These jokes often come with a Kernel of truth, making you nod along as you laugh. So next time you hear a data scientist say, “I met a statistic the other day. He was mean but easy to average,” remember that they too need a break from the number-crunching grind, even if that break is statistically proven to be corny!

Scientists have created an AI, and asked it, “Is there a God?”
The AI replied, “Insufficient computing power to determine an answer.”
The scientists connected the AI to a powerful supercomputer and gave it access to Wikipedia, and asked it again, “Is there a God?”
Again, the AI replied, “Insufficient computing power to determine an answer.”
So the scientists put the AI on a distributed cluster of millions of computers and gave it access to all the data on Google, then once again asked it, “Is there a God?”
And yet again, the AI replied, “Insufficient computing power to determine an answer”.
The scientists spent years and years and finally got the AI to be installed on every supercomputer, network, PC, console, mobile device, smartwatch, and anything with a chip. They gave AI access to every database, website, book, social media platform, every piece of software ever written and every piece of knowledge ever obtained by mankind. And for the last time, they asked the AI, “Is there a God?”
The AI replied, “There is now.”
