Hear Briggs Speak Free! Where by “Free” I mean you pay my expenses. Here are the details.
Hear the One
William M. Briggs
The Statisticians to the Stars!
speak on the Astounding Subject
Why You’re Doing Statistics Wrong.
Listen and learn…Why hypothesis tests should on no account be used for any purpose…Why p-values should be tossed outside the gate where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth…Why model parameters are no use to man or beast…Why probability models cannot determine causal relationships…Why regression is not what you think…Why you should be making predictions and not over-examining model fit…Why some models can be deduced and not appealed to ad hoc…Why some models are better than other and how to tell…Why you should learn the Third Way of Probability & Statistics…
And more importantly…Why you are making faulty, sub-optimal, and wrong decisions..and much more!
If you’d like examples of what steps the Dancing Briggs makes, you can watch these videos (many will be reminded of Fred Astaire):
- The Crisis Of Evidence, Or, Why Probability & Statistics Cannot Discover Cause
- The Need To Believe In “The Solution” To Global Warming
- The Mysticism of Randomness
- Probability Is Logic
- Statistical Follies and Epidemiology
I don’t have anything to sell except these ideas. I’m anxious we do a better job and reduce the pandemic of over-certainty the old ways have caused.
