World Statistics Day was yesterday, but we’re celebrating all week long! This celebration means acknowledging the impact statistics has on our world. Who is your favorite statistician? Share with us who they are and why they top your favorites list.
Today, we've got two "unsessions" -- attendee-driven sessions on scripting and predictive modeling.
Plenary speakers this week are
John Sall of SAS
Caroline Criado Perez, author of the book "Invisible Women"
Data journalists Anna Flagg of The Marshall Project, Andrew Ba Tran of The Washington Post, and Aleszu Bajak of Northeastern University
Shankar Vendantam, host of the "Hidden Brain" podcast and author of the book "The Hidden Brain"
And there are papers and posters, a virtual bike ride and fun run, yoga class, meditation break and social gatherings. Our virtual conference center has a lot of interactive features and virtual rooms to explore.
We're going to miss seeing you face-to-face. And inevitably, we'll face technical challenges during the week. Microphones will be inadvertently muted, wi-fi will fail, and video will freeze. But we're also confident that the Discovery Summit spirit will be as present as ever and will help us overcome whatever obstacles arise.
