Data science is giving rise to new possibilities in every walk of life — healthcare, life sciences, business, AI and robotics, banking, social science, and more. The amount of data we have at our disposal is growing on a daily basis, and what we do with that data has the power to transform the world. Data analysis, AI and machine learning can be used to combat some of the biggest problems we are facing today — from planning smart cities to preventing the spread of diseases. Here are some of the most inspiring, recent TED talks given by global leaders in the science.
