Prof Dianne Cook

Much of the data about you, is available to you. In this talk, Monash Business School’s world-renowned econometrician and ACEMS Associate Investigator Professor Dianne Cook will discuss how accessing this data can help you understand the world you live in.

In today's world, data about us is being generated in huge quantities. Our mobile phone is continuously broadcasting our location details; our household smart meter reports our electronic footprint in 30 minute chunks. Using your credit card can generate an ad appearing in your Facebook stream.

But it is possible to access both your own data, and the data of your environment. Armed with an ability to create statistical ‘plots’ of your data, you can make sense of the world around you.

The Monash Business School together with the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) invite you to join us for this Masterclass with insights presented by Professor Cook.
