Data Science and Big Data

We live in the information age, where a deluge of data is being generated by human activity, scientific data collection processes, business transactions, and adoption of new technologies. Distilling the knowledge contained in such big volumes of data has the potential to transform science, technology, business, and arts, and it can revolutionize how the human society is organized and how it functions. Data science is a new discipline that has emerged and it has the objective to provide the underlying theory and the necessary tools to cope with the data revolution.
