Practical Significance | Episode 32: Getting the 'Data' on CSAB with Andrew (Andy) Phillips

On April 21, 2021, the American Statistical Association became a full member of CSAB, joining the world’s two largest professional and technical societies for computing—the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS). This month, Practical Significance co-hosts Donna LaLonde and Ron Wasserstein welcome to the show newly appointed CSAB Executive Director Andrew (Andy) Phillips to get an update on data science accreditation. In addition to data science programs, CSAB is the lead ABET member society for accreditation of degree programs in computer science, cybersecurity, information systems, information technology, and software engineering.

Phillips talks about his leadership journey and what he has learned as a program evaluator on accreditation visits. He updates us on current initiatives, shares the history of CSAB and its connection to ABET, and looks to the future.

Finally, you won’t want to miss Ron’s traditional Top 10 as he offers up the “Top Ten Rejected Statistics and Data Science T-Shirt Slogans,” a follow-up to last month’s “Top Ten Statistics and Data Science T-Shirt Slogans.”
