Kaiser Fung author of Numbersense: How to Use Big data to Your Advantage

Kaiser Fung is a professional statistician with over a decade of experience applying statistical methods to marketing and advertising businesses. He is an adjunct professor at New York University teaching practical statistics. He is the creator of the popular Junk Charts blog and the author of "Numbers Rule Your World."

"Numbersense" gives you the insight into how Big Data interpretation works--and how it too often doesn't work. You won't come away with the skills of a professional statistician. But you will have a keen understanding of the data traps even the best statisticians can fall into, and you'll trust the mental alarm that goes off in your head when something just doesn't seem to add up.

This event is free and open to the public.
