Mark Twain, a famous American author, once stated that there are “Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics.”  This phrase is used to describe the persuasive power of numbers, particularly the use of statistics, to lead people to draw incorrect conclusions. This workshop describes the subtle mistakes that can easily be made when interpreting the results from an analytic study or report.  We describe logically sound processes for deciphering data using methods designed to illuminate actionable information for data scientists without distracting or misleading the knowledge worker from the relevant facts needed for effective decision-making.

  • Learn about common mistakes in interpreting data that lead to incorrect conclusions.

  • Learn best practice for avoiding errors when conducting analytics with Big Data.

  • Learn about the skill sets that data scientists must possess to avoid big mistakes when performing big data analytics.
