Elder Research Senior Data Scientist Daniel Brannock will speak about "Tyranny of Coincidence; When Spurious Relationships In Data Appear Significant" on a webinar hosted by KNIME on October 15, 2020. The push for organizations to incorporate analytics can result in rushed analyses with unreliable insights, even when many established best practices have been followed. A common root cause is what we refer to as the Tyranny of Coincidence, where spurious relationships in data appear significant.
In this webinar we will discuss some of the techniques we count on to avoid the Tyranny of Coincidence—target shuffling, robust combinations of cross-validation and hold out data, feature engineering, and more—with practical examples in KNIME. Register for the webinar
