Data Science is an interdisciplinary field of science that enables scientifically sound methods, processes, algorithms, and systems for extracting knowledge, patterns, and inferences from both structured and unstructured data.

Data Science uses techniques and theories from mathematics, statistics, and information technology, including signal processing, uses probability models of machine learning, statistical learning, programming, data science, pattern recognition, prognostics, uncertainty modeling, and data warehousing.

Individuals working in the field of Data Science are referred to as Data Scientists, although more specific or specializations of other, higher-level job titles are usually common (e.g., statistician, computer scientist).
