I’m in the process of researching the origin and evolution of data science as a discipline and a profession. Here are the milestones that I have picked up so far, tracking the evolution of the term “data science,” attempts to define it, and some related developments.

I would greatly appreciate any pointers to additional key milestones (events, publications, etc.).

Hi Gil, I authored a Gartner research note on the topic of what discriminates a data scientist from say a BI analyst or statistician, Emerging Role of the Data Scientist and the Art of Data Science, and a blog summary of the piece, Defining and Differentiating the Role of the Data Scientist.  These define not only the hard skills, but also the soft skills required for success. Hope this is helpful for your research. --Doug Laney, VP Research, Gartner, @doug_laney

Thanks!
