What is Data Science?
Every day, large amounts of data are generated by business, scientific and social activity taking place all around us. It comes from sensors, digital images, streaming video, satellite and medical imagery, as well as through interactions with cloud computing. Data driven approaches to decision-making are being applied in areas as diverse as medicine, business, advertising, and entertainment.
Data Science is the study, application, and development of methods to learn from available data in order to understand, predict, and improve business strategy, products and services, marketing campaigns, medicine, public health and safety. These methods include elements of computer science and statistics.
