ASA Symposium on Statistical Inference - Recorded Sessions

In October of last year, the American Statistical Association held a two-day Symposium on Statistical Inference in Bethesda, MD.

The symposium was sub-titled, Scientific Method for the 21st. Century: A World Beyond p < 0.05. That gives you some idea of what it was about.

The ASA has now released video recordings of several of the sessions at the symposium, and you can find them here.

The video sessions include:

"Why Is Eliminating P-Values So Hard? Reflections on Science and Statistics." (Steve Goodman)

"What Have We (Not) Learnt from Millions of Scientific Papers with P-Values?" (John Ioannidis)

"Understanding the Needs for Statistical Evidence of Decision-Makers in Medicine." (Madhu Mazumdar, Keren Osman, & Elizabeth Garrett-Mayer) 

"Statisticians: Sex Symbols, Liars, Both, or Neither?" (Christie Aschwanden, Laura Helmuth, & Aviva Hope Rutkin) 

"The Radical Prescription for Change." (Andrew Gelman, Marcia McNutt, & Xiao-Li Meng)

Closing Session: “Take the Mic”

The videos are stimulating and timely. I hope that you enjoy them.
