Attendee-driven "Unsessions"

According to Wikipedia, an unconference is a participant-driven meeting designed to encourage attendee involvement in topic selection and knowledge sharing. Join us for these lightly structured discussions to share your ideas and learn more about JSL scripting or predictive modeling. If you’ve got suggestions for topics you’d like to see discussed, or that you’d like to share, contribute your ideas using the buttons below.

Yoga: East Coast Midday Stretch or Sunrise in the West

What’s the best way to prepare your mind and body for being open to a week of learning and growing? That would be yoga! Whether you’re already warmed up or just getting started for the day, you’ll want to join us for this JMP-led yoga session.

12:30 - 12:45 p.m. ET

In the Flow

We talk about being “in the flow” when we’re analyzing data without interruption, when we’re writing the coolest code, or just really, really focused on a task. This is your chance to get in the Discovery Summit flow with hosts Jeff Perkinson and Jessica Marquardt. This is how you’ll be in the know about papers, posters, plenaries and all of the interactive goodness that comes with an online Discovery Summit.

12:45 - 1:45 p.m. ET

Plenary Session – Anabolic, Aphrodisiac or Analgesic?

John Sall, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President, SAS

 

As we develop analytical tools in JMP, we inevitably must make decisions about how to prioritize:

  1. Should we make the product more powerful by adding more muscle?
  2. Should we make it sexier, more exciting?
  3. Should we focus on pain relief, making it less frustrating, less burdensome?

In the language of long A-words, should we go for anabolic, aphrodisiac or analgesic? John Sall thinks the answer is analgesic. Pain relief should be the central motivating force for development.

Of course, the three aren’t mutually exclusive. Adding an exciting power feature could also relieve pain. But pain relief is central, because pain is the condition that can really freeze us, demotivate us, make us stop at a less-than-full perspective of what our data can tell us.

1:50 - 4:45 p.m. ET

Paper Presentations

What’s the next best thing to watching a Discovery paper together in person? It’s watching it live online, where you can comment in real time, ask the presenters questions, and applaud the parts that make you go “wow.”

2:00 - 5:00 p.m. ET

Discovery Expo

Who says online in real time can’t be as fun as in-person events? That’s a silly question. We know it’s not as fun. But we’re making the most of the online platform to create a very special Discovery Summit experience for you. Come to the Discovery Expo for Meet-the-Developer opportunities, Birds-of-a Feather sessions, opportunities to vote for your favorite papers and posters, talk to Tech Support, buy JMP gear, browse books, and more.

5:00 - 6:00 p.m. ET

Social: Welcome One and All

JMP employees are known for a lot of things. One of them is our hospitality. In fact, first-time Discovery attendees have been heard to exclaim wonderful things about how welcome they felt from the moment they entered the venue. Join us for a social hour for new registrants, JMP employees and Discovery veterans alike. If you like, we’ll introduce you around so that everyone knows your name.

Wednesday, Oct. 14

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET

Caroline Criado Perez, Author, Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

Author of Invisible Women, Caroline Criado Perez joins us to explore the gender data gap and invisible bias that has a profound effect on women’s lives. After sharing case studies and research results, she will answer your questions about the hidden ways in which women are excluded from the very building blocks of the world we live in.

Social: Industry & Academic Connections

We all start somewhere, and for many of us it was in a university studying to become a scientist, engineer or other type of data explorer. This is a unique opportunity for those of us who have made it in industry to share our journeys with students who will follow in our footsteps, and with professors who offer guidance to those students. All are welcome to join in the conversations and make connections.

Plenary Session – The Story Behind the Story

Aleszu Bajak, Graduate Programs Manager, Northeastern University School of Journalism

Anna Flagg, Senior Data Reporter, The Marshall Project

Andrew Ba Tran, Data Reporter, The Washington Post

Moderator: Julian Parris, JMP Strategic Initiatives and Analytics, SAS

 

While journalists have long made use of data in breaking news stories and investigative reporting, media outlets are increasingly using data visualization as a tool to convey information to the public. Compelling graphics not only make the fact-finding aspects of journalism more transparent, they are also an essential part of the investigative process. Data journalists in particular rely heavily on exploratory data analysis. Three successful journalists share the stories behind some of their most significant work.

Plenary Session – Fireside Chat with Shankar Vedantam

Shankar Vedantam, Social Science Correspondent, NPR and host of Hidden Brain

Moderator: Jeff Perkinson, JMP Customer Care Manager, SAS

 

Discovery Summits aren’t just about visualizing data and talking statistics. Our Summits are also about exploring ideas, making connections and inspiring innovation. They’re about curiosity and engagement. Which is why we’ve asked the host of “Hidden Brain” podcast, Shankar Vedantam, to close the conference with a conversation about how we understand numbers, how we make decisions and how we persuade – and are persuaded by – others. Vedantam will tell real-world stories, share his research and answer your questions.

4:00 - 4:20 p.m. ET

Close the Flow

All good things must come to an end. Lucky for you, your adventures in data exploration can continue long after this conference closes. Join us for a quick wrap-up as we announce the most popular papers and posters, and let you know where to find lots of follow-up resources.
