Question 1: What is Data Science anyway?
Question 2: Is Data Science important to me?
Question 3: What can I do about Data Science?
And then there’s the whole “Trough of Disillusionment” conversation formed using Gartners 2013 Big Data Hype cycle that may or may not interest you.
Answer 1: Its also called Big Data, Data Analytics, or results from tracking – recording the targets of your browsing or app usage to determine your preferences.
Answer 2: If you value your privacy, it may be crucially important. If you don’t care who tracks, follows, hacks, or uses your social network, then its probably of minimal importance
Answer 3: Seek employment as a Data analyst. Move to India or Rumania. Ignore it.
