What is Data Science?
Data science is a multi-disciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data. This is what Wikipedia thinks about Data Science.
Our vision about Data Science is that Data Science gives you super powers! It will let you to predict the future, build a system that can do things that, until recently, only humans could, extract meaning from and interpret data in a way that it was never done before. Data Science has all this and more. To most non-Data Scientists, what we do seems like magic.
Data is everywhere. The whole world is changing because of innovations that rely on gathering, storing and analyzing data, along with designing and developing apps and visualizations for it. All your apps – Uber, Instagram, Whatsapp – make use of data. But it’s bigger than that.
