Ahead of our Global Predictive Analytics Forum, we shared some reading material in the area of analytics & business development. The books listed below cover a range of expertise from beginner right through to re-thinking your leadership style.
In the past few years, the media has focused on publishing the most ‘exciting’ developments in AI & Robotics but such advancements come as no surprise to those working in that area. After incredible investment and decades of effort, researchers are finally releasing the technology they have tirelessly worked on.
Jerry Kaplan gives an exciting insight into the latest “advances in robotics, machine learning, and perception powering systems” that worrying for some, may exceed human capabilities. Kaplan cautions that we need to address major concerns in modern developed work – “ volatile labour markets and income inequality.”
“Humans Need Not Reply” is a must-read for business leaders & developers for an eye-opening explanation of the promises of technology!
This insightful book paints the whole picture when it comes to data collection & how we should use it to benefit our organisations. We are often witnessing companies that do not know what to do with the abundance of data they are collecting, which inevitably leaves them drowning in data that can not or has not been used.
For industry best practice, the “Outside Insight” approach is recommended for any established or start-up business that truly wants to unleash their brands potential. “CEO Jorn Lyseggen illustrates the future of corporate decision-making.”
Differing from the 2 aforementioned books, “Life 3.0” by Max Tegmark (2017) is more accessible to the general public. This book is not simply aimed at the usage of data & analytics for business purposes, but rather how we, as a society have reacted to & deal with the advancements in technology.
Max, takes a practical approach to explaining how we have come to depend on & expect certain things from technology. Furthermore, he highlights how this has impacted the way in which we think as individuals & as a collective.
We just posted the first instalment of Recommended Reading Material for Predictive Analytics. If you have read & enjoyed it, then you are going to be excited about the latest instalment.
