The new oil for digital economy
According to recent estimates, 90 percent of the data in the world today has been created in the past two years alone and its growth rate is only increasing. New technologies and businesses are required to make sense of this avalanche of data.
Data science uses state of the art mathematics and computer science methods such as statistics, machine learning, data mining and predictive analytics. This is combined with application domains such as humanities, ethics, operations and medicine. As a result, data scientists learn to identify patterns and regularities in huge data streams, combine various data sources and answer questions with and accuracy and speed that were previously not possible. As a result, data science is becoming an integral part of most types of engineering and scientific research.
