Chance magazine

Yet another interesting resource I learned about from attending the Sackler colloquium in D.C. in early March: Chance magazine.  This is a popular-press magazine and website published by the American Statistical Society.  It’s meant to help popularize statistical applications in science.

Chance was founded by Steve Feinberg, an influential statistician and National Academy of Science member who passed away recently.  At the time of his death he was the primary organizer of the Sackler colloquium on reproducibility, and so the event ended up being dedicated to his memory.

Worth checking out:



I'm a teacher, researcher, and gadfly of neuroscience. My research interests are in the neural basis of learning and memory, the history of neuroscience, computational neuroscience, bibliometrics, and the philosophy of science. I teach courses in neuroscience, statistics, research methods, learning and memory, and happiness. In my spare time I'm usually tinkering with computers, writing programs, or playing ice hockey.
