Per Wikipedia, Data Science is the extraction of knowledge from large volumes of data that are structured or unstructured, which is a continuation of the field data mining and predictive analytics, also known as knowledge discovery and data mining (KDD).
Does anyone know a “data scientist”? Data scientists work with large data sets, analysis models, and technological solutions to help businesses drive more data-driven decisions. This is known as data science. Data scientists should have these six skill sets:
