Data Science

“Data science is an interdisciplinary field that uses computer science, mathematics and statistics to extract knowledge and insights from large and unstructured data and apply those insights across a broad range of fields. A data scientist not only understands algorithms but can modify or create new ones to solve the problem at hand.”
