Research Now: Fluke or Fact? How to Measure Statistical Evidence on an Absolute Scale

Science News features Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine’s effort to find absolute measurement for statistical evidence

In science, how do you tell a fluke from a fact?  

The September 8 issue of Science News (the Society for Science’s magazine) highlights the work of our Battelle Center for Mathematical Medicine Faculty, Drs. Vieland, Das, Hodge and Seok, as an answer to this question. The group is working on a way to measure statistical evidence on an absolute scale. They are using the same mathematics that produced the thermodynamic measure of absolute temperature (Kelvin).
