Description

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

 

For courses in decision support systems, computerized decision-making tools, and management support systems.

Market-leading guide to modern analytics, for better business decisions
Analytics, Data Science, & Artificial Intelligence: Systems for Decision Support
 is the most comprehensive introduction to technologies collectively called analytics (or business analytics) and the fundamental methods, techniques, and software used to design and develop these systems. Students gain inspiration from examples of organizations that have employed analytics to make decisions, while leveraging the resources of a companion website. With six new chapters, the 11th edition marks a major reorganization reflecting a new focus — analytics and its enabling technologies, including AI, machine-learning, robotics, chatbots, and IoT.

Give students anytime, anywhere access with Pearson eText
Pearson eText
 is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience available within MyLab. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place – even when offline.

 

Pearson eText can also be adopted on its own as the main course material. Learn more about Pearson eText or contact your Pearson rep for purchase options.

Features

A new focus on analytics and its enabling technologies

·    New - The text is now organized around two main themes:

o Motivations, concepts, methods, and methodologies for different types of analytics (focusing heavily on predictive and prescriptive analytics), and

o New technology trends as the enablers of modern-day analytics such as AI, machine learning, deep learning, robotics, IoT, and smart/robo-collaborative assisting systems.

·    Revised - The authors have streamlined coverage to optimize the text’s size and content. This includes adding material on cutting-edge analytics, AI trends, and technologies, while eliminating older, less-used material.

·    Updated - dedicated website (pearsonhighered.com/sharda) continues to provide links to learning materials and software tutorials, while adding older material from previous editions.

New chapters of the 11th edition

·    New - A 100% new Chapter 2, “Artificial Intelligence: Concepts, Drivers, Major Technologies, and Business Applications,” covers AI essentials and examples illustrating the benefits of AI to businesses across industries.

·    New - A 90% new Chapter 6, “Deep Learning and Cognitive Computing,” covers machine learning, deep learning, and the increasingly popular AI topic cognitive computing.

·    New - A 100% new Chapter 10, “Robotics: Industrial and Consumer Applications,” introduces robotics applications in industry and for consumers, as well as the impact of such advances on jobs, plus legal ramifications.

·    New - A 95% new Chapter 12, “Knowledge Systems: Expert Systems, Recommenders, Chatbots, Virtual Personal Assistants, and Robo Advisors,” concentrates on these knowledge systems and their implications.

·    New - A 100% new Chapter 13, “The Internet of Things As A Platform For Intelligent Applications,” introduces IoT as an enabler of analytics and AI applications. Topics include smart homes, smart cities, and autonomous vehicles.
