Getting started with Python
Data science may seem like one of those technologies that you’d never use, but you’d be wrong. Yes, data science involves the use of advanced math techniques, statistics, and big data. However, data science also involves helping you make smart decisions, creating suggestions for options based on previous choices, and making robots see objects. In fact, people use data science in so many different ways that you literally can’t look anywhere or do anything without feeling the effects of data science on your life. In short, data science is the person behind the partition in the experience of the wonderment of technology. Without data science, much of what you accept as typical and expected today wouldn’t even be possible. This is the reason that being a data scientist is the sexiest job of the twenty-first century.
