What is Data Science?
Data Science is an interdisciplinary field about scientific methods, processes, and systems to gain information or insights from data in various forms. Sounds very familiar to Analytics. The difference between Analytics and Data Science is the methodology used to produce insights. Analytic answers are typically derived using Statistics while Data Science answers are derived from Machine Learning, which is centered around probability and combinatorics. Also, Analytics involves more Descriptive and Diagnostic Analytics whereas Data Science uses more Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics.
