Opportunities and challenges indeed! Great Data Science read!
We now live in a world where it seems that everything about us is (or soon will be) tracked and recorded: what we eat, what we watch, how we socialize, what we like and dislike, our vital health statistics—and the list goes on. Such unprecedented access to personal data presents potentially enormous opportunities to, for instance, help government officials make better policy decisions, allow businesses to operate more efficiently and profitably, streamline the use of public resources, support more personalized healthcare and drug design, and otherwise improve the overall quality of life in our society. The key to seizing these opportunities lies in our ability to convert the available data into significant decisions.
