What is Data Science?

data + science = insight

Data science is a term used to describe the process of acquiring, analysing, and making predictions from large amounts of data.

Data can be collected from various sources including people, machines, the environment, and outer space — all depending on the project. The methods used for collecting data can range from questionnaires filled in by people, to information gathered from the sensors of Internet-connected devices (i.e.: IoT). Collecting and working with large data sets is referred to as “big data”.
