Data Science

David Smith writes today on the Revolutions blog about the new terms data science and data scientist. Smith provides good background on the recent appearance of these terms and admits that he finds these terms useful.

One link Smith provides is to a post from last fall by Drew Conway, who created a Data Science Venn Diagram that defines, for Conway, where data science falls in the intersection of “hackers, statisticians, [and] subject matter experts.”

When I grow up, I want to be a data scientist.
