Overview

Can you think back to a data science experiment where the data pull went perfectly, hypotheses were clearly defined prior to analysis, the conclusions were clear, and actionable decisions were obvious? Probably not. In real life, data science is messy, with lots of room for human error and unexpected conclusions. But the gulf between your ideal data science experiment and your real-life outcome is exactly what's important to study.

Presented by Professors Brian Caffo, Jeff Leek, and Roger D. Peng of Johns Hopkins University's Bloomberg School of Public Health, this Coursera class highlights how to manage your expectations and deal with the real world challenges of data analysis. By learning when design can protect you and when it's appropriate to accept that your data simply can't answer the questions you're asking, you can learn to set your expectations and design strong data science experiments.

"We're going to talk about different variations of experimental design versus observational studies. We'll talk about some ideas for how you can check for errant data and other tools to make data analysis in real life a little bit more manageable."
