A discussion of three talks from this year's Joint Statistical Meetings
Dr. Eric Slud (Department of Mathematics and Statistics, UMCP)
Thursday, October 30, 2014 - 3:30pm, Mathematics Bldg. Room 1313
Abstract: In this talk, I will start by making some brief general remarks about prominent topics at this past August's Joint Statistical Meetings held in Boston, and will summarize and discuss three talks I heard there: one by Steven Stigler (the Fisher Lecture) on "The Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom", another by Andreas Buja on "Valid Inference after selecting predictors and variable transformations", and a third on "Bayesian post-stratification models using multilevel penalized spline regression". The first talk was general, the second about regression and model-selection problems, and the third relates "propensity matching" ideas in survey sampling.
