See my video on how much statistics you really need for data science here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_tEek2jPn-4

In this video, I talk about how much math you really need for data science, looking at two broad categories: calculus, and linear algebra. My contention is, you don’t need as much as you probably think you do. Case in point, see the book “An Introduction to Statistical Learning with Applications in R” — there is very little calculus in this book.

See this article for a discussion on distinction between practical and theoretical data science: https://www.sharpsightlabs.com/blog/math-for-data-science/

I highly recommend this book for linear algebra purposes: https://amzn.to/3ihktwA

    Fellow data scientists: how have you used math in your data science role?

    Hi sir!
    i m looking a lot of data science video, ut this channel s a bit different, first of all complimetn for video, really interesting.
    i have one question, why all people suggest a computer sceince bachelor/master and not a statisitc bachlour/msc?
    i think that for Analyze is too important stataitic background but for pick the data, building pipiline and " how wors with app/web site" where therea re data people needed cs ackroundm, is right?
    thanks from italy ๐Ÿ™‚

    TLDR, you can be a data scientist with minimal math, a real shitty data scientist

    I am totally new in data science field. I want to become a data scientist by my self study. Can you tell me which topic of maths is required for data science & also provide me how I get this source…?? Lot of love from Nepal

    Trying to come up the data science curve quickly. I'm an older student (OK OLD student). Had solid grounding in math through first year of calculus many years ago. But didn't use any math past basic algebra professionally for many years. So trying to refresh (eg. algebra, calc, geometry) and learn the stuff new to me (e.g. linear algebra, programming, discreet math) simultaneously in some coherent fashion. This video is outstanding. You are an outstanding communicator. This video is a must for anybody thinking about going down the data science road. Subscribed, liked, thumbs upped and all the rest.

    What do you think about cloud computing? do you agree with some people
    saying iot is the network and cloud computing is the brain? With
    possibly in near futur internet getting even faster will cloud computing
    be automated?
