Statistical Thinking and Data Science
Randy Bartlett, Author of A Practitioner’s Guide to Business Analytics
The recent rebranding of 'everything to do with data,' as Data Science, has led to gross mischaracterizations of applied statistics—statistical denial, and to the rejection of domain knowledge, such as HR experience. The sales and marketing behind this rebranding has convinced many that the fundamentals for data analysis no longer apply; they are selling a faulty approach.
We will dissect their claims by covering the following topics:
• Problem-based definition of statistics
• How to think statistically
• What is data science?
• Where do we go from here?
Applied statistics AKA statistical data science continues to embody our approach to data analysis—inferring from partial information.
After his presentation, Randy Bartlett, Ph.D. will be available for questions, comments, and to sign books. At that time, you may sneak a peek at his book, which shares best practices for competing in data science.
