31 March – An Kang “Misinterpretations of statistical inference and the theory of causation”

In this talk I will present some common misinterpreted statistical conclusions from daily media and explain several manipulations (deliberately or not) behind those famous stories. By introducing/correcting critical statistics concepts, the theory of causation will be discussed from my point of view. Hopefully this talk may provide some hints about how to stay sober in the COMING BIG DATA AGE.
