Week Introduction

This article introduces the week and its content to the learner.
As a human, you make decisions on a daily basis. In the third week of this course, you will learn about how data science plays a huge part in the decisions you make at a daily basis, and how we can use this to something good.

The decisions you make could be a small one, like what book you should read when you go to bed, or a bigger decision, like what you should study at college.

In the following articles in this course, we will explain the process which we follow to make these decisions. Later we will also illustrate data-driven decision-making and present example use cases.
