## Where do we go from here?

Data science is indeed a fascinating subject. As I said in the introduction, those who want to delve into its meanders need to be well trained in mathematics and statistics. Working with data that has been interpolated incorrectly renders any result about it useless. The same goes for data that has been extrapolated incorrectly or sampled with the wrong frequency. To give you an example, imagine a population of individuals that are aligned in a queue. If, for some reason, the gender of that population alternated between male and female, the queue would be something like this: F-M-F-M-F-M-F-M-F...

If you sampled it taking only the even elements, you would draw the conclusion that the population was made up only of males, while sampling the odd ones would tell you exactly the opposite.

Of course, this was just a silly example, I know, but believe me it's very easy to make mistakes in this field, especially when dealing with big data where sampling is mandatory and therefore...
