Internet search; This is the most common thing that everyone thinks of. Google we know today is the google we know because of data science. All search engines use data science algorithms to deliver fast and best results for the query searched. 

Target advertising:  search engines are not only the biggest data science application, digital marketing provides tough competition. The reason why digital ads get a lot higher focus than traditional advertisements is that they are targeted based on the user’s past behavior. The reason why you see a bags ad in the same place as I see shoes add is this only.Based on your previous searches the websites now provides product search based on suggestions, relevance, and many more.

Gaming: Nowadays games have been upgraded to the next level, games are designed using machine learning algorithms that upGrade themselves as the anticipated moves of the opponent and shapes the game. In a way, it keeps on updating itself and creating a scenario basis your moves, Xbox and PlayStation are good examples of this.

Price comparison websites It was very difficult to compare the prices of a product from different sites. Nowadays with the help of machine learning price comparison websites are created for every domain. It has become very convenient to compare the prices of different products in one place.

Air route planning: Most of the air industry has been in losses. Airline services are struggling to maintain their operating profits. Airline companies realized to use data science to identify strategic areas of improvement. Now with the help of data science, they predict the flight delays, the type of aircraft to invest in, route of the plane as to land directly to destination or any other route. Go for customer loyalty points. 

Delivery and logistics or supply chain management: Nowadays logistics companies are using data science to improve their operating efficiency and the best time to make delivery, the best route to take, the best mode of transport, etc they use other tools are used to make a customer delight experience and smooth and efficient deliveries.
