    Join us in-person or online for our August event where we'll hear from Darren Clinch, Data Analytics Coordinator at the Indigenous Data Network.

    Talk details

    Can a digital, geospatially enhanced data ecosystem incorporate Indigenous defined protocols, principles and approaches to achieve data democracy for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s?

    With the increase of ‘machine learning’ and the increase in popularity of open source applications new opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to build skills in these areas has never been more accessible. Digital storytelling with these new technological tools using different visualization objects, sounds and images seems to be a natural step for people that have had to walk in two worlds, and technology can now allow us to combine the ancient with the new.  Combining the deep connection to, and cultural knowledge of, the land with the ability to recreate that in a digitally enhanced virtual representation of that connection presents a unique opportunity for Aboriginal people and communities.   

    Darren's research will explore methods and tools available to create digital environments that reflect more intuitively the diverse and culturally unique way Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples see connectedness between culture, community, land and how to can be reflected in the use of geometry, metadata, and linked or associated datasets. Using computational processing capabilities of data, analytics and geospatial tools for forming both the components, and the task completion responsibilities, of an ensemble of applications and platforms within a processing cycle to support dynamic data visualization that will create a more culturally evolved experience for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people interacting with a data driven environment.

    Announcing a special joint meeting of the Statistical Society of Australia, W.A. Branch and the Australasian Region of the International Biometric Society.

    The invited speaker is A/Prof. Nicola Armstrong. All visitors are welcome to attend this joint meeting.

    Date: Tuesday, 10 August 2021

    Time: 6:00PM
    Location: Cheryl Praeger Lecture Theatre, The University of Western Australia


    Presentation

    Investigating Epigenetic Clocks

    Associate Professor Nicola Armstrong, Mathematics and Statistics, Curtin University.

    An epigenetic clock uses methylation levels to estimate an individual’s age. There is currently a lot of interest in these clocks, including the potential to use them to estimate age in forensics. In this presentation, I will give an overview of how these clocks are developed from a statistical perspective, introduce several well-known epigenetic clocks and discuss how they perform in practice. In particular, we were interested in assessing performance in different cohorts with neurological diseases. Our study highlights some common issues with these types of methods data science and bioinformatics that need to be considered (and often aren’t) when interpreting any findings.

    ABOUT THE SPEAKER

    Associate Professor Nicola Armstrong is currently working at Curtin University, as a teaching and research academic in Statistics and Data Science. Dr Armstrong is a statistical bioinformatician who completed her doctoral studies in Statistics at the University of California, Berkeley. Originally from Perth, she spent several years in the Netherlands before returning to Australia and eventually Perth. She is currently an Associate Professor in Statistics and Data Science at Curtin University.

    You are invited: SSA and ASPAI AGMs  - 17 August 2021

    The 2021Annual General Meetings of the Statistical Society of Australia, Inc and the Australian Statistical Publishing Association Inc will be held on Tuesday, 17 August 2021 from 5:30 pm to 6:15 pm AEST via Zoom.

    The agendas, minutes of the last AGMs and any other documents for this meeting can be viewed and downloaded here.

    The AGMs will be followed by a presentation by Professor Rob J. Hyndman, Head of the Department of Econometrics & Business Statistics, Monash University.

    Rob's talk is titled: 

    " Uncertain Futures: What Can We Forecast and When Should We Give Up?" 

    About the talk:

    Why is it that we can accurately forecast a solar eclipse in 1000 years time, but we have no idea whether Google's stock price will rise or fall tomorrow? Or why can we forecast the daily electricity consumption for the next week with remarkable precision, but we cannot forecast daily COVID-19 cases with the same accuracy?

    In this talk, he will discuss the conditions we need for predictability, how to measure the uncertainty of our forecasts, and how to evaluate whether we are uncertain enough.

    He will draw on 30 years of forecasting practice, including forecasting Australia’s health budget for the next few years, forecasting peak electricity demand in 20 years time, producing weekly forecasts of daily COVID-19 cases for all Australian states since March 2020, and forecasting the post-pandemic recovery of Australia's tourism industry.

    Rob Hyndman

    About the Presenter:

    Rob J Hyndman is a Professor of Statistics and Head of the Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics.

    His academic qualifications include a Bachelor of Science (Honours) and a PhD from the University of Melbourne. He is an accredited statistician with the Statistical Society of Australia.

    Rob has researched and consulted with a wide range of business, industry and government clients. His most recent work includes demand forecasting for the electricity industry, estimating life expectancy for the Australian indigenous population, and forecasting Australian tourism demand.

    The Statistical Consulting Centre at the University of Melbourne is presenting this course, which covers the principles and practice of designing experiments or trials, and the analysis of data from them.

    The course covers the following topics:

    • choice of experimental units;
    • importance of randomisation, and the practicalities;
    • replication and sample size;
    • blocking and matching;
    • commonly used designs, including completely randomised designs, randomised block and matched pair designs, Latin square designs;
    • treatments, including factorial structures;
    • analysis of data from designed experiments;
    • analysis of variance and covariance;
    • special designs, including incomplete block designs, split-plot designs, and fractional factorial designs;
    • transformations of data;
    • practical and ethical issues arising in the conduct of experiments.


    Course presenter:

    The presenter is Associate Professor Graham Hepworth, Consultant for the Statistical Consulting Centre in the School of Mathematics & Statistics. Graham has had extensive experience over three decades in design and analysis of experiments, in fields such as forestry, horticultural science, animal studies, medicine (randomised controlled trials), industry and the social sciences.

    Course structure:

    This online course runs over five mornings on alternate days. Each day will commence at 9:00 a.m. and finish at 12.30 p.m. The sessions will mix lecture presentations with practical exercises.   The statistical package Minitab will be used in the course. However, the course will not be package-centred, and no prior experience with Minitab is necessary.

    Who should take this course?

    The course is suitable for anyone involved in the design and analysis of research experiments. Applications include randomised trials in medicine or the social sciences, designed experiments in the biological sciences, studies of processes in engineering, as well as many possibilities in other disciplines.

    Prerequisites:
