Data science is positioned to be the major new arena of scientific discovery in the 21st century. As Eric Schimdt, CEO of Google, has pointed out, we now generate as much information every two days as we did from the dawn of human civilisation up until the year 2003. To cope with this vast amount of data, there is an urgent requirement to derive meaningful insights from very large and diverse data sources: the so-called ‘big data challenge’. Secure identification of individuals, accurate financial prediction and reliable cancer diagnosis are all examples of area in which the technologies underpinning data science are marketing revolutionary contributions, enriching our lives, and making our future healthier, more efficient and more secure.
