Title: Informed Inference in a Sea of Complexity

Abstract: What is the replication crisis? Does it (even) affect statistical and computational work? How can researchers produce and publish rigorous conclusions in non-trivial contexts? (Is it even possible?) This seminar session will begin with a summary of recent highly-publicized concerns in scientific research, and continue with a guided discussion into defining good scientific and statistical practices and identifying pathways forward for data-driven and computational work.

Background Readings:

“The American Statistical Association’s Statement on p-Values: Context, Process, and Purpose”

“Many Analysts, One Data Set: Making Transparent How Variations in Analytic Choices Affect Results”

“Observing many researchers using the same data and hypothesis reveals a hidden universe of uncertainty”
