Featuring the 2019 Case Lecture by Dr. Liberty Vittert, Washington University in St. Louis

How to win the lottery and get away with murder

Abstract: Data, numbers statistics are coming at us like a hurricane, it can be completely overwhelming. This influx of data means that government, media, businesses, advertisers, and even scientists will be using data and numbers to sway your opinion, rightly and wrongly. With enormous amounts of information we run the risk of misinformation and even more worrisome disinformation.  Using real-life examples and good old common sense, we are going to learn what questions we should be asking of data in order to spot the lies, damned lies, and statistics (with a little fake news thrown in there for good measure).
