Data Science has been described as an interdisciplinary field of scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured. Just like Information Science in the 1960s, this field has arisen to provide theoretical, methodological and practical tools to study and deal with information needs; and both are very dependent on technological constructs. The aim of this talk is to discuss the points of convergence of the two fields and possible evolutionary paths IS courses may choose to deal with novel contexts and needs that big data has offered.
