Data science, also known as data-driven science, is an interdisciplinary field of scientific methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured, similar to data mining. Data science is a "concept to unify statistics, data analysis and their related methods" in order to "understand and analyze actual phenomena" with data.

Here's a look at some of the key Big Data trends entrepreneurs need to be aware of today:

  • Heavier emphasis on predictive analytics
  • Deep learning
  • The rise of the data engineer
  • Shifting away from Hadoop
  • Big Data-as-a-Self Service

Error Management

Every organization is confronted with errors. Most errors are corrected easily, but some may lead to negative consequences. Organizations often focus on error prevention as a single strategy for dealing with errors. Our review suggests that error prevention needs to be supplemented by error management—an approach directed at effectively dealing with errors after they have occurred, with the goal of minimizing negative and maximizing positive error consequences (examples of the latter are learning and innovations). After defining errors and related concepts, we review research on error-related processes affected by error management (error detection, damage control). Empirical evidence on positive effects of error management in individuals and organizations is then discussed, along with emotional, motivational, cognitive, and behavioral pathways of these effects. Learning from errors is central, but like other positive consequences, learning occurs under certain circumstances—one being the development of a mind-set of acceptance of human error.

In his words:

As a communication professor and coach, I hear a lot from presenters about anxiety. Their two greatest fears are that they will forget what to say and that the audience won’t remember what was spoken. These fears are certainly understandable, but create much angst among nervous and novice presenters. In this series of posts, I will suggest several steps you can take to make your presentations more memorable for everyone.
