Just switched careers into SE - curious about Data Science and/or ML

Hello,

I’m a bootcamp alumni whom switched careers just last month. In my current job, I was informed that we will eventually explore audio and facial recognition libraries and tech for our project. We also query APIs to get particular results, and there were talks about developing a tool that we can feed data into to improve the results of search queries.

If I’m not mistaken, these fall within the realm of ML and Data Science? I see that there are tracks for ML and Data Science in CodeAcademy. If these tracks are relevant, should I explore both, or is one of them enough (which one)?

Thank you
