STOR Colloquium: Todd Kuffner, Washington University in St. Louis

November 15, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Title: Philosophy of Science, Principled Statistical Inference, and Data Science

 

Abstract: Statistical reasoning and statistical inference have strong historical connections with philosophy of science. In this talk, the new paradigm of data-driven science is examined through comparison with principled statistical approaches. I will review the merits and shortcomings of principled statistical inference. The talk will feature a case study of post-selection inference, recent progress regarding inference for black box algorithms, and a survey of future challenges.

 

Refreshments will be served at 3:00pm in the 3rd floor lounge of Hanes Hall
