Data science, AI and blockchain for decision makers

Have you ever felt confused by terms such as data science, big data or blockchain? What is the difference between AI and machine learning? How can you hire a good data scientist or a software developer or build a data-driven organisation? You’d like to use data-science, but don’t know where to start?  The Tesseract Academy provides the training you need. The training that the Tesseract Academy provides is optimised for the non-technical decision maker be it a startup founder, a CEO or a head of a department. It is not for those who want to become data scientists or software developers, but rather those who want to understand technology in the simplest way in order to use it within their organisation.

Stelios explained technical terms in a simple way that helped understand the basics of how data science works. We got to see how data scientists think from their perspective and how we can approach them the right way. I also met a lot of like minded people who all shared their experiences and approaches. Great insights!

Stylianos' workshop was very useful not only in terms of its technical content, going through an overview of AI, and its applications, but also in practical terms, explaining how to successfully build, manage and develop an AI team. The workshop was also an interesting networking opportunity to meet a number of fascinating individuals.

He has the unique ability to break down the very complex subject of machine learning and artificial intelligence for c - level executives with no tech background.

The Decision Maker’s Handbook to Data Science is a book which I wrote to distill the knowledge and experience I acquired after many years in the field of data science. It was also borne out of the feedback and interaction with clients that participated in the Tesseract Academy‘s data science workshop. If you are a decision maker of any short (from startup founder to manager in a big corporation), I am sure you will find it useful. The book covers topics such as: History of data science. Differences between AI, machine learning and statistics. Data management and building the right data strategy. Thinking like a data scientist (without being one). Hiring and managing data scientists. Building the right culture for data science
