Information Retrieval in Data Science Curricula presented at CNSA 2020

by Duaa Bukhari,

Summary : In the past decade, the world has been transformed by the rapidly evolving field of data science (DS). Data science as an emerging interdisciplinary field combines elements of mathematics, statistics, computer science, and knowledge in a particular application domain for the purpose of extracting meaningful information from the increasingly sophisticated array of data available in many settings. This study conducted a content analysis of the curricula of the DS master’s programs in the United States to explore what discipline DS programs covers at the graduate level. In addition, the present study discussed how DS curricula relate or connect with the field of information retrieval.
