Data Science

Data science is an interdisciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from data in various forms, both structured and unstructured, similar to data mining.

Data science is a "concept to unify statistics, data analysis, machine learning and their related methods" in order to "understand and analyze actual phenomena" with data.

The popularity of the term "data science" has exploded in business environments and academia, as indicated by a jump in job openings.However, many critical academics and journalists see no distinction between data science and statistics.

Data scientist is slightly redundant in some way and people shouldn’t berate the term statistician.
