Data Science is the future of Artificial Intelligence. As the world entered the era of big data, the need for its storage also grew. It was the main challenge and concern for the enterprise industries until 2010. All the ideas which you see in Hollywood sci-fi movies can actually turn into reality by Data Science. Unlike data in the traditional systems which was mostly structured, today most of the data is unstructured or semi-structured. A Data Scientist, according to Harvard Business Review, “is a high-ranking professional with the training and curiosity to make discoveries in the world of Big Data”. Therefore it comes as no surprise that Data Scientists are coveted professionals in the Data Analytics and IT industry. With experts predicting that 40 zettabytes of data will be in existence by 2020, Data Science career opportunities will only shoot through the roof! Shortage of skilled professionals in a world which is increasingly turning to data for decision making has also led to the huge demand for Data Scientists in start-ups as well as well-established companies. A McKinsey Global Institute study states that by 2018, the US alone will face a shortage of about 190,000 professionals with deep analytical skills. This specialization aims towards increasing the employability of the students and caters for the current industry needs.
