The Statistical Society of Australia is delighted to invite you to the following webinar

The Advent of "Grammar": Bridging Statistics and Data Science for the Design of Experiments

presented by Dr Emi Tanaka

on 27 November 2020 at 1 pm AEDT via Zoom.

About this webinar
Statistics is a valuable tool for almost all scientific fields and industry to make sense of their data, yet as a field we lag behind to remain relevant, getting superseded by the so-called data science. What differentiates statistics from data science? And how does the design of experiments fit in with data science?

In this webinar, I will talk about the concept of the "grammar" and the momentum it is gaining to make data analysis more accessible to a diverse group. I'll then present my prototype to the "grammar of experimental design" - a framework to construct the design of comparative experiments that cognitively enforces the experimental structure. I'll explain some principles behind this prototype, showcase how my developmental R-package edibble will work, and how I think it helps to bridge the gap between experimental design theory and practice for the wider community.

About the presenter
Dr. Emi Tanaka is an applied statistician whose primary interest is to develop impactful methods and tools that can readily be used by practitioners. Her research interests include mixed models and experimental designs, motivated primarily by the problems in bioinformatics and agricultural sciences. She is a lecturer at the Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics, Monash University and is currently the Vice-President of the Statistical Society of Australia Victorian Branch.
