Bridge the Gap Between Business and Data Science Teams

Machine Learning, a sub-domain of Artificial Intelligence, employs techniques used for analyzing large data sets and making predictions. These techniques are being adopted by organizations across all industries and all functional areas to achieve better outcomes – whether in healthcare for better patient outcomes or in financial services to stave off bad risk.

In order to reach optimal performance, you need to adopt the mindset and language of data scientists. In Machine Learning in Business, Rotman delivers just that — the bridge for business professionals to communicate effectively with analysts and data scientists to drive better business outcomes.
