Data Science, a field that puts order into chaos, transforms the ambiguity of abstractions into tangible information, and moves beyond mere theories to introduce concrete changes in the world around us. Change! An abstract notion likely to become concrete if the promising developments this field has to offer are successfully implemented in developing countries where the infrastructure does not allow for a smooth use of the strategies and techniques opted for in developed countries. My article was initially inspired by Professor Joshua Evan Blumenstock’s attempt at establishing an alliance between Data Science and Economy with the view of using the former as an efficient tool to eradicate poverty.
