Impressive Book

The authors intend to guide the small to medium business organization to make use of AI and robots to enhance the bottom line. Although the authors would love the business person to hire them as guides in this difficult process, the book gives great ideas and examples on how to do it on your own.

This book is a great crash course in advanced analytics. The field is extremely wide but this book is an excellent survey of the basics and areas for further exploration. It will not make you an expert but at least you will know what the experts are talking about.
