Stats + Stories: From the Royal Statistical Conference Pt. 2
WYSO is partnering with Stats and Stories, a podcast produced at Miami University.
This episode features a number of interviews from the recent Royal Statistical Society International Conference from last month. Today's guests include, Amy-Jayne McKnight discussing the challenges associated with genomic data. We consider how data is captured, processed, and then analysed and AJ outlines the challenges presented by sources of variability. Then, Lancaster University’s Harry Spearing about the application of extreme value theory to the ranking of Olympic swimmers, as well as ranking in sports more generally.
Stats and Stories is a partnership between Miami University's Departments of Statistics and Media, Journalism and Film and the American Statistical Association.
