What is Data Science? Data science is a multi-disciplinary field that uses scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data. Simply put, if you are naturally intrigued by the mathematical and statistical side of programing, then Data Science is for you.

The way we view data changed from the moment we realized that data isn't just a collection of facts lying dormant in a storage somewhere. Data can be so much more and it is certainly so much. Data represents experience, knowledge and intelligence. Studying data we can make forecast, predictions, decisions and not only can we do that as humans we can teach our computers to do the same things thereby increasing their processing and deductive powers by over a million percent.

This year's Data Science Weekend will feature four talks:
- Introduction to Data Science
- Building Your First Robot
- Making Cross-platform applications with Python
- Becoming a Techpreneur, you can do it

A training workshop session on three classes:
- Beginning Python
- Creating Web Applications with Django
- Machine Learning with Anaconda

Two panel sessions:
