for example, data scientist has its own wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_science

Thanks.

Informatics scientist is a rather broad term that could potentially include the kitchen sink of skills and may be interpreted conveniently depending on whether an employer likes you. What wiki page are you referring to?

Here is a page to ponder upon.

That's a wikipedia page, not a wiki. Wikipedia is a wiki an instance of wiki. A wikipedia page is merely an entry in that wiki instance.

Here's what Wikipedia has to say on the word "wiki":

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, the word "wiki" was used to refer to both user-editable websites and the software that powers them; the latter definition is still occasionally in use. Wiki inventor Ward Cunningham wrote in 2014 that the word "wiki" should not be used to refer to a single website, but rather to a mass of user-editable pages and or sites, so that a single website is not "a wiki" but "an instance of wiki". He wrote that the concept of wiki federation, in which the same content can be hosted and edited in more than one location in a manner similar to distributed version control, meant that the concept of a single discrete "wiki" no longer made sense.

There is also a wiki on informatics or even information science.

Again, those are wikipedia pages, not "wiki"s.
