  • RSS Nigeria Local Group: A career in statistics and its use in science and national development

    No date given

    London, United Kingdom

    RSS Nigeria Local Group: A career in statistics and its use in science and national development https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rss-nigeria-local-group-a-career-in-statistics-and-its-use-in-science-and-national-development About the event: The RSS Nigeria Local Group is hosting a career talk for secondary school students. Confirmed speakers for this event include Professor O. I. Shittu (Department of Statistics, University of Ibadan) and Professor Kayode Ayinde (Department of Statistics, Federal University of Technology). The career talk will include discussions by Professor Kayode Ayinde on the discipline called statistics and its relationship with mathematics, social science, medicine, law, agriculture etc.   Professor Shittu will talk about the uses of statistics by individuals, businesses, researchers, government and the international community. Statisticians are one of the highest paid people in the world today and we will share the career prospects and opportunities for qualified statisticians.  This event is organised in collaboration with the Professional Statisticians Society of Nigeria.  For more information about Nigeria local group visit  www.rss.org.uk/nigeria Royal Statistical Society The Royal Statistical Society, London, United Kingdom The Royal Statistical Society London United Kingdom EC1Y 8LX [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK
  • Industrial Strength Data Science presents: "a hell of a lot of skills"

    No date given

    London, United Kingdom

    Industrial Strength Data Science presents: "a hell of a lot of skills" https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/industrial-strength-data-science-presents-a-hell-of-a-lot-of-skills A panel discussion and networking event for those interested in the long term success of data science as a profession.   About this Event Being a data scientist involves a wide range of diverse skills, such as mathematics, statistics, programming, technical communication, problem-solving, business knowledge, machine learning, and on and on. And there are a number of routes into the discipline, from university courses, on-the-job training, self-taught & online courses, and data-intense PhDs. This jumble of skills and routes means no two data scientists look the same. Combined with the variety of domains that data scientists work in, and the innovative nature of the role, it is hard to definitively list the required skills of a data scientist. Is this ambiguity a problem? Has the time come for a professional data science body to create an accreditation system? What would be the benefits, and how could it practically operate? Wouldn't it create an elitist program, and stifle innovation? And who could possibly be the gatekeeper? What do you think? *This event will be followed by a drinks reception. We will explore these questions and more at our next "Industrial Strength Data Science" event on the evening of Thursday 25th July 2019, with a fantastic panel of speakers and contributors. Registration alongside refreshments will be open from 6.30 pm See you there!   Royal Statistical Society The Royal Statistical Society, London, United Kingdom The Royal Statistical Society London United Kingdom EC1Y 8LX [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK

  • RSS Highland Local Group: Can simple tests based on randomisation be used in assessment of research misconduct?

    No date given

    London, United Kingdom

    RSS Highland Local Group: Can simple tests based on randomisation be used in assessment of research misconduct? https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/rss-highland-local-group-can-simple-tests-based-on-randomisation-be-used-in-assessment-of-research-misconduct Speaker: Dr Mark Bolland, Associate Professor, Dept of Medicine, University of Auckland About the event: A number of high profile cases of research misconduct have occurred where individuals have published numerous clinical trials with fabricated data over many years. Systematic reviewers sometimes identify outlying trials with concerning issues or where the data seem too good to be true. Several cases of research misconduct have now been identified by using simple tests to try and identify whether the trial results are similar to what would be expected if randomisation took place. In this talk, I will present the results of simple techniques we have used in large cases of research fraud, and discuss how they can be used and their problems. The techniques might be useful for people undertaking systematic reviews (e.g. clinical trialists when developing a trial protocol) who come upon outlying trial results or trials that raise concern about research integrity.     Refreshments from 3.30pm with talk starting at 4pm   Royal Statistical Society The Royal Statistical Society, London, United Kingdom The Royal Statistical Society London United Kingdom EC1Y 8LX [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK

  • Extended Discussion Meeting: Signs and sizes: understanding and replicating statistical findings

    No date given

    London, United Kingdom

    Extended Discussion Meeting: Signs and sizes: understanding and replicating statistical findings https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/extended-discussion-meeting-signs-and-sizes-understanding-and-replicating-statistical-findings L. Held (University of Zurich) ‘A new standard for the analysis and design of replication studies’ A new standard is proposed for the evidential assessment of replication studies. The approach combines a specific reverse Bayes technique with prior-predictive tail probabilities to define replication success. The method gives rise to a quantitative measure for replication success, called the sceptical p-value. The sceptical p-value integrates traditional significance of both the original and the replication study with a comparison of the respective effect sizes. It incorporates the uncertainty of both the original and the replication effect estimates and reduces to the ordinary p-value of the replication study if the uncertainty of the original effect estimate is ignored. The framework proposed can also be used to determine the power or the required replication sample size to achieve replication success. Numerical calculations highlight the difficulty of achieving replication success if the evidence from the original study is only suggestive. An application to data from the Open Science Collaboration project on the replicability of psychological science illustrates the methodology proposed.

Krakauer (University of Washington, Seattle) ‘Knowing the signs: a direct and generalizable motivation of two-sided tests’ Many well-known problems with two-sided p-values are due to their use in hypothesis tests, with ‘reject–accept’ conclusions about point null hypotheses. We present an alternative motivation for p-value-based tests, viewing them as assessments of only the sign of an underlying parameter, where we can conclude that the parameter is positive, negative or simply say nothing either way. Our approach is decision theoretic, but—unusually—we consider the whole set of possible utility functions available. Doing this we show how, in a specific sense, close analogues of familiar one- and two-sided tests are always the optimal decision. We argue that this simplicity could aid non-experts’ understanding and use of tests—and help them to think critically about whether or not tests are appropriate tools for answering their questions of interest. Several extensions are also considered, showing that the simple idea of determining the signs of parameters yields a rich framework for inference.

  • Growth-fragmentation phenomena

    No date given

    London, United Kingdom

    Growth-fragmentation phenomena https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/growth-fragmentation-phenomena About the Event Many natural and social phenomena exhibit behaviour of growth and division, or fragmentation, from social groupings to cell division and protein polymerisation. Mathematically, the topic ties together problems in spectral theory and the probability and statistics of trees. This workshop presents perspectives on growth-fragmentation phenomena from probability, statistics and differential equations. Marie Doumic - Estimating the division rate and kernel in fragmentation equations Jere Koskela - Statistical inference under latent trees  Robin Stephenson - Multi-type fragmentation trees as scaling limits of Markov branching trees Registration is required. Please register here.   Royal Statistical Society The Royal Statistical Society, London, United Kingdom The Royal Statistical Society London United Kingdom EC1Y 8LX [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] HDRUK
