Hi Triangle useRs,
This month's Research Triangle Analysts meeting will be at:
Thursday, March 21 at 6:30pm
Louie & Charlie's Grill and Tavern
115 Page Point Circle, Durham, NC
Melinda Thielbar has organized a special guest speaker for this meeting: John Sall, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President of SAS Institute and Director of JMP. John will present on the topic: "From Big Data to Big Statistics":
"When you scale up the analysis, you have a lot of issues to address. When you have a lot of data, even a small difference is significant. When you screen a lot of hypotheses, adjusting for selection or multiple test bias is an issue. When you have a lot of bad data, making the analysis automatically robust becomes important. When you have big data, you need to make the computer work fast to get the job done. When you have thousands of results, you need to create compact summaries to show you all the results in one page, or at least produce the results sorted by significance. All these issues need to be resolved and the solutions encapsulated into a workflow for engineers and scientists that deal with more data each year."
I look forward to seeing you there.
