Summary

Introducing Data Science teaches you how to accomplish the fundamental tasks that occupy data scientists. Using the Python language and common Python libraries, you'll experience firsthand the challenges of dealing with data at scale and gain a solid foundation in data science.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Technology

Many companies need developers with data science skills to work on projects ranging from social media marketing to machine learning. Discovering what you need to learn to begin a career as a data scientist can seem bewildering. This book is designed to help you get started.

About the Book

Introducing Data ScienceIntroducing Data Science explains vital data science concepts and teaches you how to accomplish the fundamental tasks that occupy data scientists. You’ll explore data visualization, graph databases, the use of NoSQL, and the data science process. You’ll use the Python language and common Python libraries as you experience firsthand the challenges of dealing with data at scale. Discover how Python allows you to gain insights from data sets so big that they need to be stored on multiple machines, or from data moving so quickly that no single machine can handle it. This book gives you hands-on experience with the most popular Python data science libraries, Scikit-learn and StatsModels. After reading this book, you’ll have the solid foundation you need to start a career in data science.

What’s Inside

  • Handling large data
  • Introduction to machine learning
  • Using Python to work with data
  • Writing data science algorithms

About the Reader

This book assumes you're comfortable reading code in Python or a similar language, such as C, Ruby, or JavaScript. No prior experience with data science is required.

Mathematical Models of Spoken Language
Mathematical Models of Spoken Language
Humans use language to convey meaningful messages to each other. Linguistic competence consists in the ability to express meaning reliably, not simply to obtain faithful lexical transcriptions. This invaluable reference tool is the product of many years' experience and research on language and speech technology. It presents the motivations for,...
Fuzzy Probabilities: New Approach and Applications (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)
Fuzzy Probabilities: New Approach and Applications (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)
In probability and statistics we often have to estimate probabilities and parameters in probability distributions using a random sample. Instead of using a point estimate calculated from the data we propose using fuzzy numbers which are constructed from a set of confidence intervals. In probability calculations we apply constrained fuzzy arithmetic...
Fuzzy Chaotic Systems: Modeling, Control, and Applications (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)
Fuzzy Chaotic Systems: Modeling, Control, and Applications (Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing)
Bringing together the two seemingly unrelated concepts, fuzzy logic and chaos theory, is primarily motivated by the concept of soft computing (SC), initiated by Lotfi A. Zadeh, the founder of fuzzy set theory. The principal constituents of SC are fuzzy logic (FL), neural network theory (NN) and probabilistic reasoning (PR), with the latter...

Advanced Image Processing in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Signal Processing and Communications)
Advanced Image Processing in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Signal Processing and Communications)
Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging produces images of the human tissues in a noninvasive manner, revealing the structure, metabolism, and function of tissues and organs. The impact of this image technique in diagnostic radiology is impressive, due to its versatility and flexibility in joining high-quality anatomical images with functional...
Numerical Polynomial Algebra
Numerical Polynomial Algebra
This first book on the numerical analysis of polynomial systems is a stepping stone at the interface of symbolic computation and numerical computation. Bernard Sturmfels, Department of Mathematics, University of Berkeley

I am not familiar with any books that do such a careful job of combining numerical analysis with the algebra of

Gravitation (Physics Series)
Gravitation (Physics Series)
This is a textbook on gravitation physics (Einstein's "general relativity" or "geometrodynamics"). It supplies two tracks through the subject. The first track is focused on the key physical ideas. It assumes, as mathematical prerequisite, only vector analysis and simple partial-differential equations. It is suitable for a...
