Data Science pursues the goal to gain knowledge from data. Data Science covers the entire “data value chain”: from collection and processing to modelling.

Big Data is characterized by the following five features:

  1. the magnitude of data to be processed is very large (volume) 
  2. the diversity of data types and sources (variety),
  3. the speed at which they occur (velocity) 
  4. the valuable data must be filtered out (value)
  5. the uncertainty regarding the quality of the data (veracity).

Data Mining: Use of statistical or machine learning methods to detect new relationships and patterns in a data set. The aim is, for example, to make recommendations for decisions or make predictions.
