Signal and Noise in Science with Dan Simons
Northwestern University Swift Hall, Evanston IL
One Book One Northwestern
The primary purpose of science is the search for robust and consistent patterns in the noise. Yet, scientists are fallible, subject to the same biases, flawed intuitions, and statistical errors that affect everyday reasoning. Professor Daniel Simons (University of Illinois) will discuss how these reasoning errors have led to a reproducibility ‘crisis’ and how improved scientific practices can better filter the signal from the noise. His talk will be followed by a panel discussion among Prof. Simons and three Northwestern faculty: Jennifer Tackett, Blake McShane, and Eli Finkel.
