Data Science – Explanation for Novice

Data science is extracting meaningful and actionable knowledge from data. Data Science is the science which uses computer science, statistics and machine learning, visualization and human-computer interactions to collect, clean, integrate, analyze, visualize, interact with data to create data products.

Data Science is the future of Artificial Intelligence.

Traditional data was mostly structured and small in size so could be analyzed by using the simple BI tools. Today’s data is unstructured or semi-structured. Simple BI tools are not capable of processing this huge volume and variety of data. So we need more complex and advanced analytical tools and algorithms for processing, analyzing and drawing meaningful insights out of it.
