Title:

Closing the Gap Between Raw Data and Usable Information: Employing a Case Study About Covid-19 Data

Abstract:

The speaker hopes to address some of these during this webinar.

There is often a long path between the reality which raw data (facts) describe, and a decision-maker’s understanding of what is going on (the “big picture”).  This “data-to-understanding supply chain” can have many steps, with potential for lapses in the quality of data and information.  Knowledge workers often discover important trends in their analysis using BI tools, yet fail in their expression of important concepts to decision-makers.  We will explain this gap, and then apply the lessons to the Covid-19 data which comes out of the CDC and other sources. 

The state and county totals suffer from a variety of definitions, inconsistent processes, and various sources of delay in reporting.  Data architecture applies to crafting precise definitions of statistics—particularly the difference between counting events, people, episodes, and aggregates.  We shall also consider additional metrics which would be useful to understand this pandemic. 

This talk for a non-medical audience includes brief explanations of antibodies, false negatives, comorbidity, and other terms used.
