Jonaki Bose, National Center for Health Statistics

    Members of the ASA Committee on Applied Statisticians are looking forward to the upcoming Joint Statistical Meetings and wide variety of sessions relevant to applied statisticians.

    The committee’s student workshop will take place August 5 from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and students of all levels are welcome.

    The committee also organized an invited session, “Seismic Shifts in the Use of Programming Languages: Implications, Processes, Risks, and Consequences,” taking place August 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:20 a.m. Panelists will help contextualize how to bring structure to the move from legacy to open-source programming languages.

    The following sessions focus on applied statistics and support the 2024 theme, Statistics and Data Science: Informing Policy and Countering Misinformation.

        JSM registrants can meet new people and have invigorating discussions by attending continuing education classes and roundtables, which have an extra fee. Classes such as Text Analysis for Statisticians: Introduction to Advanced Language Modeling (CE_03C) and Merging Data Sources: Record Linkage Techniques and Analysis of Linked Datasets (CE_07C) provide applied statisticians exposure to cutting-edge tools.

        Roundtables such as Opportunities and Challenges with ChatGPT (and other LLMs) (ML08) and The Pursuit of ‘Fit’; Unique Challenges Faced by Female, Junior Investigators in STEM Fields (TL13) provide an opportunity to dig deep into specific topics.

        JSM poster sessions provide opportunities for one-on-one discussions, as well. Topics include the following:

        • Shape Mediation Analysis in Alzheimer’s Disease Studies
        • The Use of QR Codes in a National, Multimode Survey
        • Causal Decomposition Analysis of Survival Disparity in Colorectal Cancer
        • Synthesis of Machine Learning Applications to Coalbed Methane Recovery and Coal Mine Safety
