Note: DO NOT summarize part of the reading or retell a story told by Salsberg in the text. Instead, provide an interpretation of and/or an opinion about what you read. If you feel like the default topics are leading you down a path to summary, please choose your own topic to discuss.
- Default Topic 1: L.J. Cohen believes that decisions based on probabilistic arguments are not logical decisions (p. 300). Consider this argument and discuss whether or not statistical models can be used to make decisions.
- Default Topic 2: Does statistics primarily deal with distinctions “below the level of human perception” as Suppes argues (p. 307) ? If so, how can it be relevant? How does this insight apply to computing?
