Data Science is an emerging discipline that integrates the foundations, tools and techniques involving data acquisition (sensors and systems), data analytics (machine learning, statistics), data storage and computing infrastructure (GPU/CPU computing, FPGAs, cloud computing, security and privacy) in order to enable meaningful extraction of actionable information from diverse and potentially massive data sources. Data scientists in ECE use digital signal processing algorithms to collect and understand the structure in data, looking for compelling patterns, telling the story that's buried in the data. They get to the questions at the heart of complex problems and devise creative approaches to making progress in a wide variety of application domains.
