Digital Echoes: Understanding Patterns of Mass Violence with Data and Statistics

September 19, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

HRDAG’s director of research, Patrick Ball, explores the assumption that nearly every project using data must make: that the data are representative of reality in the world.The talk illustrates how biases in raw data can be addressed through estimation, and explain why it matters. This talk will be followed by a Multiple Systems Estimation workshop, also by Patrick. Registration for this seminar will close at 17:00 on Friday 9 September 2016. Follow on Twitter @CamBigData.
