Statistical analyses can be used to solve a wide variety of real world problems but can also lead to spectacularly bad mistakes. In this talk, Professor Tony Lin draws on his 21 years of experience in the aerospace industry to illustrate how to avoid common pitfalls in statistics, and what can be achieved when statistical analyses are done properly. Among other topics, he will show how statistical analyses saved NASA $950M on the International Space Station, how a simple statistical analysis might have helped NASA avoided a $328 million error on a mission to Mars, and how statistical analyses helped Target corporation figure out a teen girl was pregnant before her father knew..
Tony Lin has a PhD in Statistics from Uc Berkeley and an MBA from USC. He has worked as a full-time statistician at the Boeing corporation for 21 years, where is a Boeing Technical Fellow and Six Sigma Master Black Belt. Tony has also taught business statistics part time at USC for 17 years.
