- data science, open data science
- the Earth is round
- Spatial data have support
- big data, interoperability, and luxury problems?

Combining

- statististical understanding
- data manipulation / software engineering skills
- domain knowledge (understanding data)

into a single person. And then, what they do.

*Data Science has at least one advantage over Statistics, which partially explains its existence. Re-defining an existing field like Statistics is terribly difficult, whereas itâ€™s much easier to define something new from scratch.**We see a substantial mismatch between what is needed to learn from data and the much smaller subset of activity that is structurally rewarded in academic statistics today.*
