Techie Corner – 2017 – Post #10 – Data Science

What is the new field of data science?

My two cents, but please share yours:

Data science is not the new jargon for statistics. It is an umbrella term that encompasses a great deal more. Data science includes statistics, but also adds to this computer programming, data mining, analysis of big data (think terabytes of data), and specific business insights. Some aspects of this job will be automated in the future. However, much of it–the business insights, etc.–will continue to be handled by human beings.
