Summary

Includes vital coverage of how to avoid common pitfalls when first introducing Data Science to the enterprise. 
The need for precise, actionable, reliable, real-time Business Intelligence (BI) lies at the heart of the role of Big Data in modern commerce. In turn, the art of “Data Science” lies at the nexus of Big Data and BI, providing the essential methods by which BI can be extracted from Big Data's great black mass of constantly flowing, unstructured information. 
This combination has a created a new profession: an elite and specialized class of highly-compensated professionals specially skilled at data cleaning, analysis, and visualization. We call them Data Scientists, and their evolving role in the organization is one about which managers must have a clear understanding. 
As shown in What Every Manager Should Know About Big Data and Data Science, integrating data scientists (and the general practice of Data Science) into the organization is often a delicate process involving the redefinition of traditional roles within the enterprise as well as dealing with issues of territoriality amongst peers. 
To accomplish this task, managers need a firm knowledge of the what and whys of Data Science, the specific BI needs it is uniquely positioned to service, and the procsses by which it functions. 
Such is the knowledge this important book provides.

    Los temas discutidos en este libro, traducido al inglés por el australiano Kieran Tapsell, forman parte de una disciplina revolucionaria conocida como psicología evolutiva, que se ha convertido en la herramienta más poderosa descubierta por el ser humano para entenderse a sí mismo. Gran parte del conocimiento revelado por la ciencia humana se explica como resultado del proceso evolutivo, tomando como premisa la teoría de que la mayoría de los deseos, impulsos, intereses y facultades mentales humanas fueron diseñadas por la evolución de las especies. Este nuevo enfoque nos permite sintetizar un grupo ya establecido de descubrimientos, que provienen de diversas disciplinas como genética, evolución, antropología, psicología, neurología y epistemología. De esta manera es posible explicar una parte importante del comportamiento humano desde un solo principio unificado: la búsqueda directa o indirecta de una mayor eficacia reproductiva. Con este trabajo, de fácil lectura para el público general, el autor completa un ciclo de temas que comenzó con el libro Del Big Bang al homo sapiens (2004), publicado en español por Villegas Editores.

    Paul Chiasson reveals the possibility that early Chinese settlers landed in Cape Breton long before Europeans. 
    
     
    
    From the very beginning of the European Age of Discovery, Cape Breton was considered unusual. The history of the area even includes early references to the island having once been the land of the Chinese. In 1497, at least a century before any attempt at European settlement in the region, the explorer John Cabot had referred to Cape Breton as the “Island of Seven Cities.”  
    
     
    
    The indigenous people of the region, the Mi’kmaq, were the only aboriginal people of North America who had a written language when Europeans first arrived. This writing, clothing, and customs also suggested an early Chinese presence.  
    
     
    
    In Written in the Ruins, Chiasson investigates the ruins at St. Peters in the southern part of the island, where evidence brought to light supports a theory that could answer all the questions raised by the island’s curious, unresolved history.

    Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined? In The Nature of Space and Time, two of the world’s most famous physicists—Stephen Hawking (A Brief History of Time) and Roger Penrose (The Road to Reality)—debate these questions. 
    The authors outline how their positions have further diverged on a number of key issues, including the spatial geometry of the universe, inflationary versus cyclic theories of the cosmos, and the black-hole information-loss paradox. Though much progress has been made, Hawking and Penrose stress that physicists still have further to go in their quest for a quantum theory of gravity.
