Title : What is Data Science?
Abstract: The subject of Data Science is evolving and the phrase means different things for different disciplines.
The talk will summarize a theoretician's view of what foundations we should teach students. Instead of a
compendium of topics, I will highlight some simple tools and concepts from high dimensional geometry,
Statistics and Computer Science which underlie modern techniques.
