Experiments, observations, and numerical simulations in many areas of science and business are currently generating terabytes of data, and in some cases are on the verge of generating petabytes and beyond. Data mining of massive data sets is transforming the way we think about crisis response, marketing, entertainment, cyber-security, and national intelligence. It is also transforming how we think about information storage and retrieval. Collections of documents, images, videos, and networks are being thought of not merely as bit strings to be stored, indexed, and retrieved, but also as potential sources of valuable information. Discovery and knowledge, requiring sophisticated analysis techniques that go far beyond classical indexing and keyword counting, aiming to find relational and semantic interpretations of the phenomena underlying the data.Data Science and Bigdata are two key areas for positive interdisciplinary science involving mathematics, computer science. The context is the management of heterogeneous data of potentially very big scale.
Data scientist may practice various functions, from setting up new decision–making information systems, with a deep impact in management, to developing completely new applications in various sectors of activities such as: software editors, online shopping, public services, high tech, banking and finance, biomedical institutions…
