What is interesting about data science?

Apart from the fact that data science is one of the most aspiring & lucrative sectors in today’s job markets; the most interesting factor about data science is that all hypothesis, theories & algorithms can be applied to real-world scenarios. Generally, in other sciences & engineering; students are often searching on where to apply the theoretical concepts. In data science, all algorithms & theoretical concepts correspond to practical business problems.

For me, the excitement in data science is in the journey toward achieving three significant kinds of results: discovery, insights, and innovation.

As a lifelong scientist, I was always doing data analysis, mostly using standard methods. But when I first encountered mathematically interesting algorithms that can be used to explore large data sets in novel ways to achieve novel results, I was hooked and then decided to dive into data science as my career.
