I've had the thought often that not only do we need writers, data scientists and management involved in sharing information, but also social scientists and psychologists to explain how our brains work and not alway behave in rational ways. Not only do we often put out information in ways that's not understandable to the public, but the public has it's own "mysterious" ways of interpreting what they read and hear. Socicl scientists might be able to mediate that problem.

Very important subject. Should be intuitive. Understanding the pitfalls is very important. Look forward to it.

I am really disturbed by this inability to make simple conclusions based on data, this is very dangerous to Freedom and Peace. 

I think we are seeing this very clearly at this very moment.

"....and 99% of statistics are made up"

 

@Michelle    Reminds me of the quote, "There are lies and damn lies ..."

 

Can't recall who said that first though.

This might be the most important A2 show yet !   And that is saying something.  This issue of misinterpreted or misrepresented data reaches far beyond the private sector and I really hope to be at this show.

I'm looking forward to the show. I hope I can make it to the live broadcast!

Data doesn't lie so much as the analyses thereof -- and conclusions therefrom -- do.

As Twain put it, "There are lies, there are damned lies, and then there are statistics."

Looking forward to this.
