Most of what data scientists do is nothing new, and much of what’s new is really a throwback to what we used to do 20 years ago. So why data science so popular now?

In this talk, Dean will describe what differentiates data science from related fields like Business Intelligence, Predictive Analytics, and Statistics, and will illustrate the use of data science from case studies in customer analytics and fraud detection.
