Learn about cutting-edge developments in AI and Data Science from the experts who know them best on ODSC’s Ai X Podcast. Each week we release an interview with a leading expert, core contributor, experienced practitioner, or acclaimed instructor who is helping to shape the future of the AI industry through their work or research.

In-Person and Virtual Conference

April 23rd to 25th, 2024

Join us for a deep dive into the latest data science and AI trends, tools, and techniques, from LLMs to data analytics and from machine learning to responsible AI.

 

In this episode, Allen Downey, PhD, experienced instructor, an expert in Data Science and Bayesian Statistics, and author of the book “Probably Overthinking It,” will take you on an exploration of surprising statistical phenomena and how they’re related to real-life common mistakes like the base rate fallacy, length-biased sampling, and Simpson’s paradox.

In the interview, we discuss his book, “Probably Overthinking It,” which “uses data visualizations instead of equations to build understanding from the basics to help you recognize errors, whether in your own thinking or in media reports.”

 

We also discuss a number of common data interpretation issues, such as paradoxes, bias sampling, and causation, collision, and confusion.
