Live Sessions

Monday, Oct. 4

1:00 - 4:00 p.m. ET

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. 

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

Social Time
Welcome to Discovery

 

This interactive, informal session is designed for first-time attendees and Discovery veterans alike. You’ll get a virtual walk-through of the conference center and learn some tips and tricks for making the most out of your Discovery days. Come with questions and plan to have a bit of fun too.

Tuesday, Oct. 5

Plenary Session

Delicate Brute Force

 

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

Sometimes the way to solve a challenging problem is to just take advantage of the speed of computers and apply a brute-force approach. In one situation, the problem was to find a design space (a set of factor limits that leads to satisfying specification limits on the responses), specifically finding the space that fits within the highly nonlinear constraints implied by the model from limits on the responses. Another problem was to perform hierarchical clustering on the kinds of huge data sets encountered in genomics research, something that used to perform poorly. In each case, rather than solving the problem directly, there are short cuts that combine brute-force computation with delicate application. 

1:15 - 4:45 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-Experts opportunities, Birds-of-a Feather sessions, opportunities to vote for your favorite papers and posters, talk to Tech Support, browse books, and more.

1:30 - 4:45 p.m. ET

Simu-Live Papers

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

Poster Session

Discovery Summit posters have always been a little less formal than the papers, a little more interactive and certainly more social. In the spirit of making learning fun, we’ve built a social event around this year’s papers. We hope you’ll join us!

Data Explorer Spotlight

 

We’ve been known to say that great software in the right hands can change the world. That’s because we’ve seen scientists, engineers and other data explorers make amazing discoveries with JMP. And we’ve seen how those discoveries can lead to far-reaching, earth altering, and lifesaving advances. For this segment, a few of those data explorers will share their statistical success stories with us.

Quiz Bowl

 

What is the best way to relax after a hard day of exploring data and thinking about complicated statistical techniques? It’s to answer questions under pressure, of course! JMP users tend to love solving problems and putting themselves to the test. There’s nothing trivial about this after-hours quiz. Join us!

Plenary Session
Facets of a Diverse Career

Alyson Wilson, Associate Vice Chancellor for National Security and Special Research Initiatives, NC State University

My career is a testament to John Tukey's statement: “The best thing about being a statistician is that you get to play in everyone’s backyard.” I have been fortunate to work in academia, industry, and government; for a small business and a large bureaucracy; on collaborative projects with partners from many disciplines; on topics ranging from reliability to counterproliferation to atomic-scale characterization of materials. I will highlight some of the inflection points in my career and share lessons I have learned about the value of diverse practitioners with diverse perspectives collaborating on solutions.
