The power of big data isn’t found in an algorithm. The power of data comes from talented data scientists who know why, how, and when to use it. In the hands of these data scientists, data can inform critical business decisions, shape social discourse, even change the world for the better. That’s why Notre Dame focuses on developing highly-trained, ethical leaders in data science — leaders who combine expert technical and mathematical skills with critical thinking and a deep understanding of how their work impacts the world we live in.
