What is data science? 

The science concerned with the ‘discovery’ of information from large volumes of unstructured data is called ‘data science’. This field has high practical relevance, as the generation and application of information is an important economic activity in today’s world. For example, data science techniques can be used in information systems for maintaining an information model of the dynamic environment, based on things like real-time sensor data. These information models, in turn, can be used to offer tailored services to the users in the environment. Isn’t that smart?
