4. "Data isn’t units of information. Data is a story about human behavior - about real people's wants, needs, goals and fears. Never let the numbers, platforms, charts and methodologies cloud your vision. Our real job with data is to better understand these very human stories, so we can better serve these people. Every goal your business has is directly tied to your success in understanding and serving people." — Daniel Burstein

Data Science Quote by Daniel Burstein

5. "Data science is a combination of three things: quantitative analysis (for the rigor required to understand your data), programming (to process your data and act on your insights), and narrative (to help people comprehend what the data means)." — Darshan Somashekar

7. "A data scientist combines hacking, statistics, and machine learning to collect, scrub, examine, model, and understand data. Data scientists are not only skilled at working with data, but they also value data as a premium product." — Erwin Caniba

Data Science Quote by Erwin Caniba

8. "Banks, insurance and healthcare companies all have decades of historical, transactional customer data stored on their mainframe. Mining that data can deliver great value and be used to develop predictive models by analyzing customer behavior in order to offer new, tailor-made solutions, and anticipate customer needs. It has therefore become a strategic priority for visionary business leaders to unlock data and integrate it with cloud-based BI and analytic tools." — Gil Peleg

Data Science Quote by Timothy Robinson
