Data Science For All: Math For Modern Times
Jan 14, 2021
Almost every occupation involves interpreting and analyzing data as well as making decisions based upon that data. The modern business world was built on the spreadsheet. Medical professionals make life and death decisions comparing conflicting data. Natural scientists and social scientists wrangle data by the fistful. Politics, policy, sports, automotive technology, heck, even reading a newspaper requires data analysis skills these days. Nonetheless, data sources are not always ethical and algorithms are not always as transparent as they initially seem. Making decisions driven by data can cause pre-existing biases to persist which leads to a lack of objectivity and can result in poor decision-making.
