A report on Computer science and Data science

Charles Babbage, sometimes referred to as the "father of computing".
The existence of Comet NEOWISE (here depicted as a series of red dots) was discovered by analyzing astronomical survey data acquired by a space telescope, the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer.
Ada Lovelace published the first algorithm intended for processing on a computer.

It uses techniques and theories drawn from many fields within the context of mathematics, statistics, computer science, information science, and domain knowledge.

- Data science

An alternative term, also proposed by Naur, is data science; this is now used for a multi-disciplinary field of data analysis, including statistics and databases.

A support-vector machine is a supervised learning model that divides the data into regions separated by a linear boundary. Here, the linear boundary divides the black circles from the white.
An artificial neural network is an interconnected group of nodes, akin to the vast network of neurons in a brain. Here, each circular node represents an artificial neuron and an arrow represents a connection from the output of one artificial neuron to the input of another.
Illustration of linear regression on a data set.
A simple Bayesian network. Rain influences whether the sprinkler is activated, and both rain and the sprinkler influence whether the grass is wet.
The blue line could be an example of overfitting a linear function due to random noise.

Neural networks research had been abandoned by AI and computer science around the same time.

He also suggested the term data science as a placeholder to call the overall field.

According to ACM Europe and Informatics Europe, informatics is synonymous with computer science and computing as a profession, in which the central notion is transformation of information.

In the United States, however, the term informatics is mostly used in context of data science, library science or its applications in healthcare (health informatics), where it first appeared in the US.

Naur in 2008

Peter Naur (25 October 1928 – 3 January 2016) was a Danish computer science pioneer and Turing award winner.

Naur disliked the term computer science and suggested it be called datalogy or data science.
