Seminar — Talk “How NOT to measure the statistical significance of your research” by Viktor Petukhov (PhD student at BRIC, KU). The talk will describe and criticize an approach to estimate statistical significance using p-value. Viktor will also discuss how to survive in the world of biological and medical research, where p-values are inevitable. Last, but not least, alternative methods of research validation based on Bayesian statistics will be described.
