As a Big Data journalist, he enjoys keeping a pulse on this fast-paced industry. He’s also an educator having taught data science, machine learning and R classes for UCLA, UC Irvine, and UC Davis. He’s authored four computer industry books on database and data science technology, including his most recent title, “Machine Learning and Data Science: An Introduction to Statistical Learning Methods with R.” Daniel sits on a number of advisory boards to bring the benefits of data science to businesses.
