Data science is a newly emerging field of science that deals with the task of extracting useful information and gaining insight from huge data. Its main objective is to reveal the characteristics of natural, human, and social phenomena using data.  It provides the user with an ability to analyze large data collections. The purpose of this paper is to briefly present a primer on data science.
