RSS Leeds/Bradford: Research reproducibility and good practice in statistical software
14:55-15:00 Chair of the Leeds/Bradford Group
15:00-15:45 Michael Croucher
Is your statistical software correct?
Performing modern statistical research is almost impossible without the aid of software. Many of us use statistical software to one degree or another – from small analyses in Microsoft Excel through to R or Python Scripts on our laptops right up to large machine learning pipelines in the cloud.
How can we be sure that our computational results are correct when we employ these techniques? In this talk, I will discuss what can go wrong and strategies we can employ to increase the probability that our computational research gives the right answer.
15:45-16:30 Anna Krystallo, Research Software Engineer, University of Sheffield
