Book Description

Data's value has grown exponentially in the past decade, with 'Big Data' today being one of the biggest buzzwords in business and IT, and data scientist hailed as 'the sexiest job of the 21st century'. Practical Data Science Cookbook helps you see beyond the hype and get past the theory by providing you with a hands-on exploration of data science. With a comprehensive range of recipes designed to help you learn fundamental data science tasks, you'll uncover practical steps to help you produce powerful insights into Big Data using R and Python.

Use this valuable data science book to discover tricks and techniques to get to grips with your data. Learn effective data visualization with an automobile fuel efficiency data project, analyze football statistics, learn how to create data simulations, and get to grips with stock market data to learn data modelling. Find out how to produce sharp insights into social media data by following data science tutorials that demonstrate the best ways to tackle Twitter data, and uncover recipes that will help you dive in and explore Big Data through movie recommendation databases.

Practical Data Science Cookbook is your essential companion to the real-world challenges of working with data, created to give you a deeper insight into a world of Big Data that promises to keep growing.

Health and the Good Society: Setting Healthcare Ethics in Social Context (Issues in Biomedical Ethics)
Health and the Good Society: Setting Healthcare Ethics in Social Context (Issues in Biomedical Ethics)
In this book I explore some of the implications of looking at healthcare ethics in social context. My starting point is the contention that clinical ethics cannot be insulated from questions in public-health ethics; and the book is in large part an elaboration and defence of that contention. My purpose is partly substantive and...

Programmable Logic Controllers
Programmable Logic Controllers

Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) continue to evolve as new technologies are added to their capabilities. The PLC started out as a replacement for hardwired relay control systems. Gradually, various math and logic manipulation functions were added. Today PLCs are the controller of choice for the vast majority of automated...

Neural Networks: A Systematic Introduction
Neural Networks: A Systematic Introduction
One of the well-springs of mathematical inspiration has been the continuing attempt to formalize human thought. From the syllogisms of the Greeks, through all of logic and probability theory, cognitive models have led to beautiful mathematics and wide ranging application. But mental processes have proven to be more complex than any of the formal...
