About Foxy Data Science
Data, like bricks, was never meant to remain in this form. It wants to be something more, but it can't on its own. That's where data science comes in, to turn data into information, insight, and intelligence, through the intelligent use of math, programming, and any relevant domain knowledge.
All this is done through the creative application of the scientific process, just like an architect finds ways to put all these bricks together to form something that is useful and hopefully stands the test of time. This needn't be done in a boring way, however. A fox-like attitude works best, as it allows for creativity and innovation. These essential qualities and more are explored in this blog, through articles, case-studies, and anything data science related.
