Data Science is an interdisciplinary field that allows you to extract knowledge from structured or unstructured data.

Data Science has emerged because of the evolution of mathematical statistics, data analysis, and big data.

Data science enables you to translate a business problem into a research project and then translate it back into a practical solution.

Benefits of Data Science:

  • As per Mukesh Ambani,data is the oil for today's world. With the right mix of tools, technologies, algorithms, we can use data and convert it into a distinctive business advantage.
  • Example:Based on the mobile usage data, Goole map can show the current and predicted traffic in a perticular route
  • Data Science can help you to detect fraud in financial or telecom sectors using advanced machine learning algorithms
  • Data science helps you to prevent any significant monetary/life losses
  • Helps in predicting upcoming or possible diseases like Cancer in human beings
