Yes, they heavily leverage their data science team. From what I understand this allows them to create new business where this data insight allows pricing assets (eg rail cars) attractively. So they essentially multiple arb by launching a new business and exiting it as a platform.

I think there are a lot of funds that talk about use of data in investing but I there would only be a handful of companies that have access to this level of talent and existing data sets in PE. HF/Renaissance is a different story.

I think they are a bit of a joke. They "over fit" their data angle to situations where the most basic fee bullet points of the business/investment thesis fall short.

Depends where you are in your career. If you're junior, prob better going elsewhere if you have options. If you don't have other solid PE options, then it's an easy choice.
