Definition

According to: NYC Data Science Academy,Data science is a multi-disciplinary field that combines computer science and statistics.

The objective of data science is to pull insightful and useful knowledge out of datasets which, at times, can be too large for traditional statistics to analyze.

This can include anything from analyzing complex genomic structures, to interpreting handwriting, to optimizing a marketing strategy.

Most data science bootcamps require an aptitude for math and statistics, and in some cases knowledge of a programming language, such as R or Python.
