Data Science involves massive amounts of data and this data is then passed through various Machine Learning algorithms and techniques. Machine Learning could be considered a subset of Data Science in a way but also, it entails much more than that. Machine Learning provides techniques that facilitate data extraction and also employ various methods to learn from the data. Well-defined algorithms then allow future trend predictions from the data.

Traditional ML had its foundations around discovering trends and patterns and extracting insights from the available data. Data Science, on the other hand, requires knowledge of mathematics and statistics aside from subject expertise. These three are the cornerstones of the Data Science domain.
