A couple of decades ago, the major issue for computer scientists was the storage of Big Data which was pretty much resolved by Hadoop 2010. Afterward, the focus has been moved to the handling of that data. what information we can retrieve from it. Here comes the field of DATA Science which is a buzz word these days. When we heard about data science. we listen to some more terms like Machine learning artificial intelligence. Predictive analysis and deep learning. In this paper we will cover all those concepts which are interlinked to data science and without knowing them, we will not be able to understand the core of this multifaceted field. While writing this paper I have gone through a huge list of literature and wasn't able to find a single source from where I can understand all the different fields which are linked to Data science, with the help of this paper, any beginner will be able to understand what Data Science is actually and how other domains are different to it.
