Hey friends, and a warm welcome to the 23 new subscribers!
Yesterday I went for a flash visit to the Conversion Hotel conference to give my talk on ‘Expanding Experimentation’. It was great to glimpse so many familiar faces again. I planned to spend the full three days there, but decided that wasn’t a wise thing to do amid a new corona wave.
As always all links are handpicked by me, so you don’t have to. Enjoy!
🔎 What I’ve been reading this week
In response to his earlier post about misunderstanding of p-values, Ronny Kohavi now wrote a note explaining p-values, and the intuition behind the application of Bayes Rules. He is open to feedback.
Short summary on the MIT Conference on Digital Experimentation (MIT CODE):
“This community has made substantial recent advances in making these methods both more practical and more theoretically rigorous.”
“We found, surprisingly, that no single feature of a headline’s writing style makes much of a difference in forecasting success.”
Ruben de Boer released this free ebook to help you apply psychology in your A/B testing program.
