Across the University of Illinois campus, scholars and researchers in virtually every discipline are involved with data science. This nudge will give you an overview of the campus-wide resources to meet the challenges and opportunities of data science as in-demand skillset and mindset.

 
   
 
 

What is data science?

According to Allen Renear, Dean of the Illinois School of Information:

"Data science is concerned with all aspects of the creation, management, and analysis of data, focusing in particular on the applications of computational methods to digital data."

This definition expresses a key distinction—that data science is doing things to data rather than with data.
