Not My Ideas

Three mind stretching analytic articles from the past week that everyone with an interest in analytics should read:

1) Phil Birnbaum (who I had the pleasure of sitting on a panel with at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference) argues that analytics is best used to eliminate stupidity.

2) While I'm not necessarily a fan of the study or agree with the outcomes, at least Dave Berri is trying to ask interesting questions about measuring the impact of coaching. I think this is a very difficult topic and one that is not at all settled. Always good to have the discussion though.

3) Lots of talk about data and information in the news that last few weeks, but these words are not synonyms - and the difference is actually important.
