Machine learning, neural networks and artificial intelligence are becoming almost inflationary buzzwords, nevertheless these techniques increasingly shape and influence science and society. Data-driven algorithms allow to cope with the tremendous amounts of data in modern experiments, ranging from particle [1] to astrophysics [2]. Especially for earth-observations there are also numerous examples where so-called deep learning networks [3] or a combination of different algorithms [4] can lead to new insights and open up new possibilities beyond established statistical methods.

In this talk I will be giving a brief introduction to modern data science methods and discuss some recent applications in science and research. I will highlight pros and cons of these algorithms and focus on examples from weather and climate research.
