  STARTREK.COM : Biography
Even with that goal, Data turned down a chance to be human offered by Q in 2364, quoting Shakespeare's "To thine own self be true," but inched closer to his goal with the discovery of an "emotion chip" created by his builder, Dr. Noonien Soong.
Data was the fifth and next-to-last model created by Soong and his then-wife Juliana on the Omicron Theta science colony, activated on Feb. 2, 2338 when found by members of a U.S.S. Tripoli away team after the Crystalline Entity had drained the life force from the 411-member colony.
Data has said his post-activation months were rough, but the crew who found him inspired him to join Starfleet and, after being deemed sentient, he was accepted to Starfleet Academy in 2341 - with Cmdr.

  Data - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Latin plural data is also used as a plural in English, but it is also commonly treated as a mass noun and used in the singular.
Such data are typically further processed by a human or input into a computer, stored and processed there, or transmitted (output) to another human or computer.
Raw data is a relative term; data processing commonly occurs by stages, and the "processed data" from one stage may be considered the "raw data" of the next.

 Data (Star Trek) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Data's character was a rough counterpart to Spock from Star Trek: The Original Series (TOS) in that he had a rational, analytical mind and found humans hard to understand.
Data refused, then sought and won a legal judgment – with the aid of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, his commanding officer serving as his legal counsel – declaring him a sentient being with the same rights as other Federation citizens ("The Measure of a Man").
Data's upper spinal support was a polyalloy designed for extreme stress; his skull was composed of cortenide and duranium ("The Chase").

Data Warehousing and Mining (DWM) is the science of managing and analyzing large datasets and discovering novel patterns and in recent years has emerged as a particularly exciting and industrially relevant area of research.
Prodigious amounts of data are now being generated in domains as diverse as market research, functional genomics and pharmaceuticals; intelligently analyzing these data, with the aim of answering crucial questions and helping make informed decisions, is the challenge that lies ahead.
The Encyclopedia of Data Warehousing and Mining provides a comprehensive, critical and descriptive examination of concepts, issues, trends, and challenges in this rapidly expanding field of data warehousing and mining (DWM).

 N C H S - Health E Stats - Preliminary Births for 2004:  Infant and maternal health
Where data for only a portion of the year are revised (Florida and New Hampshire implemented the 2003 revision during the course of the year, that is, after January 1, 2004), both revised and unrevised data for items that are not comparable for the State are excluded.
Data from the vital records of the remaining 35 States, the District of Columbia, and New York City are based on the 1989 revision of the U.S. Standard Certificate of Live Birth, which follows the 1977 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) standard, allowing only a single race to be reported (7,9,10).
In order to provide uniformity and comparability of the data during the transition period, before all or most of the data are available in the new multiple race format, it was necessary to “bridge” the responses of those who reported more than one race (multiple race) to one, single race.

 Data @ NASA GISS: GISS Surface Temperature Analysis: 2005 Summation   (Site not responding. Last check: )
However, the error bar on the data implies that 2005 is practically in a dead heat with 1998, the warmest previous year.
One large source of differences is the attempt in the GISS method to estimate the temperature anomaly for all areas that have at least one station located within 1200 km, using weights for these stations that decrease linearly with distance from the station.
These two ocean data sets are combined by working with anomalies for both data sets and defining anomalies relative to a common period, specifically 1982-1992.

 EPIC Page on EU-US Airline Passenger Data Disclosure
Under this scope the transfer of personal data to US government agencies can hardly be seen as a fulfillment of the contractual obligations of the airlines or travel agencies vis-à-vis their passengers (see Working Party's Opinion WP 66).
However, the purpose of requesting data is not limited to the investigation and prevention of terrorism, but to all "serious criminal offenses." Therefore the allegation remains that the US is using foreign private companies as data collectors for law enforcement purposes.
The companies would then have to send this data to law enforcement agencies in the appropriate destination country, and would also be asked to investigate all foreign nationals who fail to leave the EU on the scheduled date of their return flight.
