【原文摘录】

Contagious:

TargetingDirect Marketing: 精准营销

BenjaminFranklin forgot to include it when he proclaimed, “Nothing can be said to becertain, except death and taxes.” P22

Hereceived his answer form the investor: “Go for it!” This meant there wasnothing to prevent moving forward.

Rollercoaster: 公园中的过山车.

Anarrow focus is key to the success of many businesses, but Elder Research’sadvantage is quite the opposite: its diversity. P35

Thesystem informs what factors drive employee attrition, empowering managers todevelop more robust strategies to retain their staffs in order to reduce costsand maintain business continuity.

Philosophicalconundrum: 哲学难题P57.

Thecompany’s purposes are altruistic. (P65).Altruistic: feelings and behavior that show a desire to help other people and alack of selfishness.

Geniusis one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration. ---Thomas Edison.P73.

Themass migration of online applications from your desktop up into the cloud (akasoftware as a service) make even more of your computer use recordable byorganizations. P75.

Ananalysis of bank data of suspected terrorists revealed a propensity to not holda life insurance policy. P85. Propensity: a strong natural tendency to dosomething.

Inthis way, data scientists have it easier with PA. It just needs to work;prediction trumps explanation. P90.

Karriewas, after all, advising Eric within a more erudite field of research, social computing, the examination ofhuman social behavior within a computer science framework.

【读后感】

中文版对messup(Pxxvi,英P7)的翻译有问题。

Forexample, employees with higher salaries, more raises, and increased performanceratings quit less. (P48). 此句中的“performance”在薪酬管理领域应翻译成“绩效”,而不是中文版中的“表现”。看来该翻译者不具有人力资源管理背景。

我发现有些英文单词的翻译确实比较难。比如detour,在该书中文版翻译成“迂回”(中P11),而在英英词典里根本不是这个意思。所以,学习英文的时候不要偷懒,要看英英词典。

这本书没有过多地提到大数据,与中文标题的大数据预测没什么关系;而是过多地讲解了预测分析的各种各样的预测场景,预测分析的各种模型。最后,指出未来预测分析的方向。是一本预测分析方面的科普读物。作者对该领域有透彻的理解和感悟,知识面比较宽。
