Dear Applied Statistics Workshop,
Please join us this Wednesday, December 10th, when Amanda Cox (who is with
the New York Times) when she will present "Open Problems in NYT Graphics".
 Amanda provided the following abstract:


The New York Times graphics department is a group of about 30 journalists
who make the charts, maps and diagrams for the print and online versions of
the paper.  This talk is a (completely unofficial) guide to some of the
problems the department faces on an ongoing basis, including how to
represent uncertainty in an accessible way, and how to move beyond something
I call "Here is some data:" toward something closer to inference.

The applied statistics workshop meets at 12 noon in room K-354, CGIS-Knafel
(1737 Cambridge St) with a light lunch.  Presentations start at 1215 pm and
usually end around 130 pm.  As always, all are welcome and please email me
with any questions.

Cheers
Justin Grimmer
