Once you’ve read this Data Science book you’ll be able to separate the hype from the tangible benefits of Data Science and artificial intelligence. Finally, you can easily determine if and how Data Science & Analytics can work for your organization.

From Big Data to Zero Data

In addition to big data, small data and zero data are also rich sources of information that have the potential to generate valuable insights. Within these data sets and outside of the databases you can also find gold nuggets. Consider, for example, the products your customers didn’t buy, which is data that’s not registered in your database. Big Data Analytics also means analyzing and detected patterns in unstructured data such as photos, videos, sound recordings, website scrapes, emails, and other documents.
