Abstract

A question is present nowadays in academic and research arenas: as we manage data, adopting several different processes and methods, as this management relates to other fields, so different and identifiable, can data science be considered as a scientific field? The chapter develops a study around this question, observing how, potentially, this field was formed and continues to evolve, gaining new definitions and practical views, pressured by the massive adoption of technological resources to manage data and a progressive level of demand of products and services which are obtained from data, as those regarded as information or knowledge outcome. The study was conducted to appreciate the possible characteristic of multi-, inter-, and trans-disciplinary aspects for this scientific field, aiming to understand this perspective as a mature characteristic of a scientific field. These arguments were checked, which form the data science context, determining a final level of perception for this study, that considered data science as a new, innovative, in formation scientific field.
