Who is using regression models with interactions?

I believe biostatisticians use it, especially with small data sets, in the context of clinical trials, especially when using dummy variables (e.g. 0/1 for gender.) I am wondering how decision trees…Continue

AI: Miniaturization of Robots

Started this discussion. Last reply by Michael Rawson May 18, 2018. 2 Replies

Maybe this seems like science fiction, but I was wondering if some companies are developing robots that are so small, that they are about the size of a virus. You could imagine a swarm of robotic…Continue

Is it better to overpredict, or underpredict?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ethan Scott Mar 14, 2018. 5 Replies

New Data Science Cheat Sheet, by Maverick Lin

Below is an extract of a 10-page cheat sheet about data science, compiled by Maverick Lin. This cheatsheet is currently a reference in data science that covers basic concepts in probability, statistics, statistical learning, machine learning, deep learning, big data frameworks and SQL. The cheatsheet is loosely based off of The Data Science Design Manual by Steven S. Skiena and An Introduction to Statistical Learning by Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie and Robert Tibshirani. Inspired…See More

Raymond Staess commented on Capri Granville's blog post How the Brain Interprets Visualizations
"Agree, this sort of representation doesn't help as a data visualization. I wouldn't "compare values ... with a nice picture" at all. First, a pair of pictures like this and the details on them (esp. on the bigger one) distract…"

Andrew Reid replied to Capri Granville's discussion Who is using regression models with interactions?
"Hi Capri, Forgive me if I've got the 'wrong-end-of-the-stick' here but I am always cautious about using categorical variables (especially those with few 'categories') in interactive effects. In the illustration used here, it…"

John Williams replied to Capri Granville's discussion Who is still using regression models with interactions?
"Is this a question or a statement? The title of the article seems to imply that modelling interactions is passé, but the text of the article seems to advocate doing it. So I'm a little confused. If it's a question, then the answer…"

How the Brain Interprets Visualizations

I was comparing home prices in San Francisco between 1994 and 2018, and I noticed that it has increased by a factor 4 over 25 years. In the meanwhile, the inflation index increased by a factor 1.7 (see here.) I am not saying here that my sources are correct or wrong -- entire books have been written on the subject -- but instead, my purpose here is to show how some visualizations can be…See More
