Do we really care about data science?

May 2, 2015 — Leave a comment

Perhaps we need to really focus on decision science.  The old parlance of data science had this orientation.  Decision science is the ‘so-what’ of data science….making better decisions (even if those are automated and embedded in transaction systems).

I like this focus because it naturally relates to the decision-maker (currently in most circumstances) and how we make decisions.
