Prof. Foster Provost is interviewed about his new book, "Data Science for Business"
January 07, 2014
Excerpt from NYC Media Lab -- "As a professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business, Provost noticed during his data classes that there weren’t any books he could recommend to his MBA students that taught the fundamental principles. They were either too granular and focused on the math, or else too high-level. Provost stopped using a book altogether and started writing class notes, eventually compiling them into a book with former colleague Tom Fawcett. Data Science for Business goes beyond this note-taking, designed to equip business executives with the knowledge they need to manage data scientists, gather data, and extract value from it."
