Description

Acclaimed data scientist DJ Patil details a new approach to solving problems in Data Jujitsu.

Learn how to use a problem's "weight" against itself to:

  • Break down seemingly complex data problems into simplified parts
  • Use alternative data analysis techniques to examine them
  • Use human input, such as Mechanical Turk, and design tricks that enlist the help of your users to take short cuts around tough problems
Learn more about the problems before starting on the solutions—and use the findings to solve them, or determine whether the problems are worth solving at all.
