It’s all about the data.

Data science is all about creating the computer operations and calculations that help gather information, harness it, find patterns in it, and deliver answers, solutions, and that pair of shoes to your doorstep.

With an incredible 2.5 quintillion bytes of data being created every day, 90% of the world’s data has been created in the last two years alone. A staggering figure, it is expected that the volume of data is to double every two years.

Data science can predict elections, direct self-driving cars, discover new planets, or help grow a business into a global enterprise. It can look at the future of the world, from climate change to cures for cancer.
