In this session, Francine Bennett will give a hands on overview of the process of answering questions from data.
We'll talk about some ways to tackle a fundamental statistical question: I see a difference in two sets of data. How can I test if it's meaningful?
We'll work with some real data in R (please download and install R and RStudio before the session), although you're welcome to follow along in another language of your choice. We'll cover statistical approaches including ANOVA, t-tests, and chi-squared tests.
Francine Bennett is a data scientist, and is the CEO and cofounder of Mastodon C. She spent a number of years before that working for search engines, helping them to turn data into money.
She likes coffee, running, sleeping as much as possible, and large datasets.
