In a world where data continues exponential growth trajectory one needs to be able to make sense of the data. Many times people take data visualizations and statistical reports at face value. If only there was a book to help people cut through the noise of Big Data, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence. The book “Becoming A Data Head” is that book that helps readers cut through the noise and hype of these new realms of leveraging data!
The book provides tools and details on how readers can better understand the merits of machine learning, artificial intelligence, and overall use of data. There are also chapters on probabilities, statistics, and regression equations that help set the foundation for the more advance methodologies. I love how the authors break down these complex ideas so that readers can be skeptical and challenge assumptions. In addition readers will know how to ask better questions at the start of a project, so that the data analytics project will provide meaningful results.
This book will help people work more efficiently with data scientists and communicate the problems they are trying to solve with data available to them. I highly recommend this book for anyone that wants to improve their understanding of data and the methods that can be used to analyze data sets.
