Abstract:     
The use of the term 'Data Science' is becoming increasingly common along with 'Big Data.' What does Data Science mean? Is there something unique about it? What skills should a 'data scientist' possess to be productive in the emerging digital age characterized by a deluge of data? What are the implications for business and for scientific inquiry? In this brief monograph I address these questions from a predictive modeling perspective.
