P-value extravaganza, a comic (!) video on the basics of hypothesis testing. Statistics applied to beer, but not how you think. I think that everybody who’s taught (frequentist) statistics has wanted to do what Fisher does to the guy who says that the p value is the probability that the null hypothesis is true. And how had I not heard the mnemonic that “the null hypothesis is the dull hypothesis”? I tend to call it the “boring hypothesis” or the “uninteresting hypothesis” which has much the same meaning but doesn’t rhyme.
(I drink beer out of bottles, so I hadn’t heard of the example on which this video is based.)
I’m looking for a job, in the SF Bay Area. See my linkedin profile.
