The art of uncovering the insights and trends in data has been around since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians used census data to increase efficiency in tax collection and they accurately predicted the flooding of the Nile river every year.

In this course, we will meet some data science practitioners and we will get an overview of what data science is today.
