Book Review of Super Crunchers by Ian Ayres

Authors

Abstract

Batchelor writes, "Super Crunchers tells how simple statistical models applied to large data sets are increasingly being used to improve decision making in a wide range of business and professional applications. It highlights the fact that these models generally outperform the judgment of experienced and well-informed experts" in a wide variety of tasks. Ayres presents three circumstances under which such models can help improve decision making and offers several cases that support his argument well.
