Finding correlations in big data — ask the expert!


The paper Detecting Novel Associations in Large Data Sets stirred up quite some excitement. Mostly in the stats/comp community, where many welcomed a theory paper in a prominent journal, but some voiced concers about the quality of the results. I’ve posted about this previously.

Now another prominent journal, Nature Biotech, tries to explain what the fuzz is about to a wider readership by interviewing 8 experts: Gustavo Stolovitzky, Peng Qiu, Eran Segal, Bill Noble, Olga Troyanskaya, Noah Simon & Rob Tibshirani, and Edward Dougherty:

No big surprises for me, but maybe a nice intro for people not from the network-field.
