Sounds like computer science to me. And not only that, but thanks to computer science, science is significantly more controlled and accurate than it ever could be at any point in the past.
I don't know what you think computer science is or how you came to the conclusion that it's comparable to economics, but you clearly aren't very well informed. If you're sending data packets out, but some of the information is getting corrupted and is unrecoverable, and you want to solve this problem, does this seem like something that can be solved with soft science? What about the problem of removing distortion from audio?
I suppose that you could argue that there non-hard science elements to certain jobs that are related to computer science (for example, predicting criminal behavior and potential exploits if you deal in security, or considering what might be convenient to a user if you're designing a search algorithm), but even those jobs build on a very strong foundation in math and logic, and the foundations that tie every computer science-related job together are very hard.
