The Zen of data science

Data science, big data, advanced analytics, machine learning… The buzzwords are many, the opportunities are great, and the complexity can be overwhelming. This presentation focuses on the heart, or “Zen” of the issue, presenting key concepts, distinguishing core from detail, and helping you to effectively navigate the complexity.

This is a high-level, non-technical presentation sharing key insights on the strategic business function of business modelling. A must for those developing their own analytics and data science capability.
