Overwhelmed by Information? Underwhelmed by Static Graphs?

Predictive Analytics for the Eyes and Mind The best predictive business models are those that present data as interactive graphs that reveal more than just the inputs and the outputs with a black box in between. So says Stephen Few, Principal of the consultancy Perceptual Edge, in an hour-long JMP Webcast, Predictive Analytics for the Eyes and Mind. Few discusses predictive analytics and how models should be built to display information in a way that allows our eyes to see relationships and our minds to make sense of them. He features an example that uses the JMP Prediction Profiler.

Trends in the Statistical Assessment of Product Reliability

ReliabilityTraditional reliability data has consisted of failure times for units that failed and running times for units that did not fail. Methods for analyzing such right-censored data were developed in the 1950s and the 1960s and became well-known to most statisticians by the 1970s. The statistical methods for the analysis of censored data that began to appear in commercial software by the mid-1980s are commonplace today. Read more about statistics and product reliability in this paper by reliability expert William Meeker.

Berkeley Researchers Help Save CA Oaks

Sudden oak death is a devastating forest disease caused by a newly described pathogen present in Oregon and California coastal forests. Matteo Garbelotto and his research team at UCB studied the use of phosphites to control the disease on live oaks, and used JMP to analyze their data. Listen to Garbelotto talk about this research and other UCB projects.
