Large-Scale Inference: Empirical Bayes Methods for Estimation, Testing, and Prediction (Institute of Mathematical Statistics Monographs)

By Bradley Efron

We are living in a brand new age for statistical inference, the place glossy clinical know-how corresponding to microarrays and fMRI machines sometimes produce hundreds of thousands and occasionally hundreds of thousands of parallel information units, every one with its personal estimation or checking out challenge. Doing millions of difficulties instantaneously is greater than repeated program of classical equipment. Taking an empirical Bayes procedure, Bradley Efron, inventor of the bootstrap, indicates how details accrues throughout difficulties in a manner that mixes Bayesian and frequentist rules. Estimation, checking out, and prediction mixture during this framework, generating possibilities for brand spanking new methodologies of elevated energy. New problems additionally come up, simply resulting in improper inferences. This e-book takes a cautious examine either the promise and pitfalls of large-scale statistical inference, with specific awareness to fake discovery charges, the main winning of the recent statistical ideas. Emphasis is at the inferential rules underlying technical advancements, illustrated utilizing numerous genuine examples.

Trust in Numbers: The Pursuit of Objectivity in Science and Public Life

By Theodore M. Porter

This research of the overpowering allure of quantification within the sleek global discusses the advance of cultural meanings of objectivity over centuries. How are we to account for the present status and tool of quantitative equipment? the standard solution is that quantification is visible as fascinating in social and fiscal research because of its successes within the examine of nature. Theodore Porter isn't really content material with this. Why may still the type of luck accomplished within the examine of stars, molecules, or cells be an enticing version for study on human societies? he asks. And, certainly, how may still we comprehend the pervasiveness of quantification within the sciences of nature? In his view, we should always glance within the opposite path: comprehending the points of interest of quantification in enterprise, govt, and social study will educate us anything new approximately its position in psychology, physics, and drugs.

Drawing on a variety of examples from the laboratory and from the worlds of accounting, coverage, cost-benefit research, and civil engineering, Porter exhibits that it truly is "exactly wrong" to interpret the force for quantitative rigor as inherent by some means within the job of technology other than the place political and social pressures strength compromise. in its place, quantification grows from makes an attempt to boost a method of impersonality according to pressures from outdoor. Objectivity derives its impetus from cultural contexts, quantification changing into most crucial the place elites are susceptible, the place deepest negotiation is suspect, and the place belief is briefly supply.
