What is Data Science?

One of the videos that more engaged me to continue and complete Coursera’s IBM Data Science Professional Certificate.
Prof. Murtaza Haider defines Data Science as “one’s attempt to work with data to find answers to questions that they are exploring

After completing a set of courses like those, you will arrive at your work the next day and then you may feel frustrated when noticing that the actual concern is not finding the answers, but making them likable even if they are not accurate and impartial.

In my opinion, before facing a Data Science / BI project you should ask yourself (or your board of directors):

  • Do you know the questions?
  • Do you have good data to work with?
  • Will you assume the answers though you don’t like them? (my fav)
