Granville. Granville uses restrictions on data size and methods to define what data science is. Yet he lists algebra, calculus, and training in probability and statistics as necessary background “to understand data science” (page 4). The goal should be to define data science in a more exclusive, discipline- and platform-independent, size-free context where data-centric problem solving and the ability to weave strong narratives take center stage. Patil’s definition is that it is inclusive of individuals of various academic backgrounds and training, and does not restrict the definition of a data scientist to a particular tool or subject it to a certain arbitrary minimum threshold of data size.

Why on earth would someone use small data at a time when the world is awash with big data? Thus, small-sized data sets are likely to be less intimidating for those who are embarking on this new brave journey of data science, and the same concepts that apply to small-sized data could readily be applied to big data. These include how big data helped Google predict flu trends faster than the government, how UPS saved millions of miles with advanced algorithms, and how the retailer Target became aware of a teenager’s pregnancy before her father did.
