Inaugural lecture by Prof. Chat Wacharamanotham, 13.03.2017, 17:00

You are warmly invited to the inaugural lecture of Prof. Chat Wacharamanotham titled "How do we read statistics?".

As an expert for Human–Computer Interaction (HCI), he studies how people use computers and how computers help, hinder, or (even unconsciously) influence their users. In particular, he is investigating how scientists use computers in statistical analysis. He also designs interactive systems that make using statistics easier and less error-prone.

In this talk, Chat Wacharamanotham will discuss works in HCI, information visualization, and eye tracking research that reveal how people read statistics. He will also point out opportunities for computers to help readers of statistics arrive at an accurate interpretation.
