Estimating Dataset Requirements for Data Science Projects

John Mount answers a common question:

We will phrase the problem in terms of a measurement of error. For example, let’s try to achieve a given square error in a regression problem. That is, how hard it it to estimate a number given a sample from a larger population?

From there, John covers several scenarios and provides us guidance. The answer isn’t “30 observations.” Usually.
