The third annual David L. DeMets Lectures Series presented by the Department of Biostatistics & Medical Informatics will be held on November 9th and 10th of 2017.

Recent Advances in Post-Selection Statistical Inference
Friday, November 10th – 12:00 to 1:00pm
Biotechnology Center Auditorium

In this era of big data and complex statistical modeling, scientists use sophisticated computational tools to search through a large number of models, looking for meaningful patterns. The challenge is then to judge the strength of a large number of apparent associations that have been found. This statistical problem has become known as “Post-selection inference,” the assessment of significance and effect sizes from a data-set after mining the same data to find these associations. In this talk I will discuss new methods for computing p-values and confidence intervals in regression, that correctly account for the adaptive selection of the model.

This is joint work with Jonathan Taylor, Ryan Tibshirani, Will Fithian and Richard Lockhart.
