A Few of My Favorite Things

John Sall, JMP creator and co-founder of SAS, is well loved for his talks that introduce new versions of JMP to the marketplace. No matter where in the world he is, Sall is never more at home than when he shows off the new features and functionality of JMP products. For this keynote, however, he will take a deep dive into a few of his favorite things about JMP and JMP Pro. Get ready to be surprised and delighted at Sall’s choices.

How to Create a Culture of Analytics

Pockets of analytic excellence could be a good thing – what organization wouldn’t love having various groups of statistical geniuses guiding decisions? Phil Simon, award-winning author specializing in management, contends that those pockets are often suboptimal and potentially dangerous. What is truly powerful is an organization in which analytical thinking pervades the culture – where experimenting is valued and decisions are based on data as opposed to gut instincts.

All Graphs Are Wrong, but Yours Can Be Useful

Data visualization is our most efficient tool for understanding information, but it’s far from perfect. Collected data is an imperfect representation of the underlying information. A graph is an imperfect representation of the data. Our understanding is an imperfect representation of the graph. But don’t despair. Xan Gregg, creator of the Graph Builder, will talk about how understanding visual perception can help us make more effective data visualizations.

The Flight of the Phoenix

The 1965 movie The Flight of the Phoenix is a story about a plane crash in the Sahara desert following World War II. One of the survivors says he's an airplane designer and that they can make a flyable plane from the wreckage of the demolished “flying boxcar.” The movie is all about the hard work and effort required to do this, and the all-star cast makes for a tremendously enjoyable adventure flick. There’s an interesting parallel between this movie and design of experiments. In the late 1980s, many academic statisticians declared design of experiments dead; an area in which all of the important, relevant research had already been done, and it was unnecessary to invest any further effort in serious study and research. This was while applications were expanding at an exponential rate. It turns out that the field was far from dead, and the period from the early 1990s to the present has been one of the most productive in terms of new design of experiments methodology and applications environments. This talk focuses on some of the reasons that some felt design of experiments was no longer of interest and some of the new developments and applications that have made this one of the most active and important fields of applied statistics. A true “Flight of the Phoenix.”
