I wrote a SIAM News Article with Chris Johnson on Data Science, and How to Teach It. The data revolution is shaping up to become one of the great new quantitative endeavours of our time, and, as in all quantitative fields, mathematics is poised to play an important role. We make the point that there are important synergies between data science and computational science, which make it clear that educational programs in areas like “computational and data science” or “mathematics of data and computation” hold significant promise for interdisciplinary success.
