Before diving straight into this topic, allow me to shed some light on the root term upon which the whole domain stands —data. Each and every day, the volume of data produced on Earth is increasing exponentially. From the simple text that sent in your WhatsApp to 200+ minutes of movies you streamed online, we are surrounded by data in every possible way. But the only problem is, these gigantic volumes of data are unorganized and unstructured, providing less substantial information than they might otherwise. This is where data science comes to the rescue.

Understanding the term ‘data science’

Data science is an interdisciplinary field that ranges from programming to statistics and — most importantly — to domain knowledge. Simply put, data science is the process of drawing insights from manipulating data.
