What is Data Science?

Data Science Diagram
  • Computer Science is more than just programming
  • Statistics is more than just estimators and tests
  • Mathematics is more than just proofs and abstraction
  • Data Science is the interplay between computer science, statistics, and mathematics along with domain-specific knowledge to extract meaning and make predictions from data.
