What 50 Years of Data Science Leaves Out - Sean Owen, Cloudera

We're told "data science" is the key to unlocking the value in big data, but, nobody seems to agree just what it is -- engineering, statistics, both? David Donoho's paper "50 Years of Data Science" offers one of the best criticisms of the hype around data science from a statistics perspective, and proposes that data science is not new, if it's anything at all. This talk will examine these points, and respond with an engineer's counterpoints, in search of a better understanding of data science.
