Seminar on Graphical Statistics - Prof. Antony Unwin

Prof. Antony Unwin of Universit├Ąt Augsburg will be showing us why interactive graphical data analysis is important, and how it can be used with modelling to clean and explore data, detect trends, patterns and clusters and present results.

Graphical Statistics: Now you see it

Weds 14th October 12:30 - A130 

The seminar will uses datasets on movies and air crashes to illustrate three main ideas:

  1.  Graphical analysis is valuable -- and more difficult than it looks;
  2.  Many graphics are better than one -- however optimal the one may be;
  3.  Graphics and modelling complement each other well -- use them both.

Antony's group has pioneered the development of graphical methods in statistics and produced a whole host of innovative and elegant techniques for graphical data analysis. These are implemented in elegant software such as Mondrian, Manet and Gaugin.

Antony has just published Graphical Statistics with R.
