We are seeing an emergence of a unified science of data for scientific discovery, social good, and commerce. Data science is at the nexus of thriving communities in mathematics, engineering, statistics, information science, physics, and computer science. This talk will provide perspectives on how data science may have profound effects on personalized health, transportation, social sciences, and education.
