Data Science (DS1101)


Data science is essentially the science of studying data in order to arrive at conclusions based on the data studied.

It is a broad term used to discuss a number of different disciplines and incorporates many different languages and processes in order to find patterns and trends that could then be used to come to some sort of hypothesis.

Data science requires an in depth knowledge of computing, statistics and mathematics in order to utilize systems to extract knowledge from data. It commonly requires a knowledge of both implementing and building algorithms that data can be pushed through. These algorithms can then be placed onto systems and the process can be automatically run.
