RS 182 - Spencer Greenberg on "How online research can be faster, better, and more useful"

Release date: April 16th, 2017

Spencer Greenberg

This episode features mathematician and social entrepreneur Spencer Greenberg, talking about how he's taking advantage of the Internet to improve the research process. Spencer and Julia explore topics such as: how the meaning of your research can change dramatically when you ask people *why* they gave the answers they did on your survey, how the sheer speed of online research can help us solve the p-hacking problem, and how to incentivize scientists to share their data and methods.

Very interesting discussion. Online research appears to present quite a lot of complex difficulties. I tried Spencer's website, it's actually quite a lot of fun. Maybe someone would buy the mug for $2 and sell it for $6 just to make a profit. Hopefully his cognitive behavioral therapy and online research software work out well. They both sound very promising.
