Data science allows industries to turn information into actionable insights. It can resolve issues within individual sectors and the economy at large — but used incorrectly, it can also create problems. As the past year has demonstrated through the impacts of COVID-19, climate change and demands for social change, the ability to gather, process and interpret data is essential to solving the world’s challenges, and it has the potential to profoundly improve the quality of life for all of us.
