How to Win the Lottery and Get Away with Murder

Thursday, September 24, 12:00-12:45 p.m. CT 

featuring Liberty Vittert

Professor of Practice in Data Analytics


Do you ever wonder whether or not a glass of red wine a day is good for you, if US unemployment really is increasing or decreasing, if there is discrimination in capital punishment decisions or what a 95% accurate COVID test really means? Professor Liberty Vittert will discuss the tools you need to ask the right questions anytime you are presented with data to figure out the truth and not be manipulated. We live in a new world where numbers are everywhere, and we collect more information than we ever thought possible. Using real-life examples and good old common sense, we are going to learn what questions we should be asking of data—in both our everyday and working lives, in order to spot the lies, damned lies and statistics (with a little fake news thrown in there for good measure).
