Data science has emerged in response to the growing need to make sense of the billions of gigabytes of data generated globally every day, and their powerful impact on our society, economy and way of life.
But what exactly is it?
To mark one year since our launch as the national centre for data science, we talked to some of the social scientists, mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists, engineers, and industry and government thinkers who are driving this new area of research in The Alan Turing Institute about what data science means to them – and the role of the Institute in pioneering this new science.
