Decision Making is the basis of free and responsible human actions. While our ancestors’ Decision Making was based on impressions and opinions, ours can be based on real data collected professionally. In some cases Decision Making can become a complex process, but giving people the right tools can help them successfully move through that process. Our Satellite Conference is committed to different models of Decision Making and to the interface between the agent making decisions and the data required. The Conference will bring together statisticians, statistics educators, practitioners, psychologists and even behavioral economists to consider issues related to using data to make decisions. It will offer something for everyone from students to researchers across disciplines; anyone with some prior exposure to statistics and probability theory.
Within the overall theme Teaching Statistics in a Data Rich World we will focus on these sub-topics:
- Topic 1: Inference from data
- Topic 2: Making sense of big data
- Topic 3: Evidence based decision making under risk and uncertainty
- Topic 4: Statistics Education in the 21st century
