From the author of the bestsellers, *Data Scientist* and *Julia for Data Science*, this book covers four foundational areas of data science. The first area is the data science pipeline including methodologies and the data scientist's toolbox. The second are essential practices needed in understanding the data including questions and hypotheses. The third are pitfalls to avoid in the data science process. The fourth is an awareness of future trends and how modern technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) fit into the data science framework.

The following chapters cover these four foundational areas:

- Chapter 1 - What Is Data Science?
- Chapter 2 - The Data Science Pipeline
- Chapter 3 - Data Science Methodologies
- Chapter 4 - The Data Scientist's Toolbox
- Chapter 5 - Questions to Ask and the Hypotheses They Are Based On
- Chapter 6 - Data Science Experiments and Evaluation of Their Results
- Chapter 7 - Sensitivity Analysis of Experiment Conclusions
- Chapter 8 - Programming Bugs
- Chapter 9 - Mistakes Through the Data Science Process
- Chapter 10 - Dealing with Bugs and Mistakes Effectively and Efficiently
- Chapter 11 - The Role of Heuristics in Data Science
- Chapter 12 - The Role of AI in Data Science
- Chapter 13 - Data Science Ethics
- Chapter 14 - Future Trends and How to Remain Relevant

Targeted towards data science learners of all levels, this book aims to help the reader go beyond data science techniques and obtain a more holistic and deeper understanding of what data science entails. With a focus on the problems data science tries to solve, this book challenges the reader to become a self-sufficient player in the field.

Dr. Zacharias Voulgaris was born in Athens, Greece. He studied Production Engineering and Management at the Technical University of Crete, shifted to Computer Science through a Masters in Information Systems & Technology (City University of London), and then to Data Science through a PhD on Machine Learning (University of London). He has worked at Georgia Tech as a Research Fellow, at an e-marketing startup in Cyprus as an SEO manager, and as a Data Scientist in both Elavon (GA) and G2 (WA). He also was a Program Manager at Microsoft, on a data analytics pipeline for Bing. Currently he is the CTO of a data science startup in London, UK. Zacharias has authored two other books on data science: Data Scientist - The Definitive Guide to Becoming a Data Scientist, and Julia for Data Science.
