    Episode 3: Intro to Inductive Reasoning for Data Scientists

    Watch it on...

    Today's episode is a short introduction to a fundamental concept. Definitely worth your time!

    Inductive reasoning is the fundamental challenge to scientific rigor. Induction is baked into methods like K-fold cross validation or generalizing from a sample to a population. However, many statisticians and data scientists are unfamiliar with the term and its implications. Joseph Wu (Brown University) gets us up-to-speed with a 15-minute presentation on the fundamental role of induction in scientific reasoning.
