Dan Ariely headlines JMP analytics conference
Discovery Summit showcases new version of JMP® statistical discovery software
CARY, NC (Sep. 07, 2010) – The surprising science of behavioral economics takes center stage with renowned author and researcher Dan Ariely at Discovery Summit 2010. The annual analytics conference, hosted by the JMP business unit of SAS, the world leader in business analytics software and services, will convene Sept. 13-16 at SAS world headquarters in Cary, NC.
A Duke University professor and frequent contributor to NPR’s Marketplace program, Ariely argues that people often behave contrary to their own economic best interests. His discoveries about irrational decision making were uncovered through experiments on online dating, revenge, cheating and other engaging topics. Ariely will sign copies of his new book, The Upside of Irrationality.
SAS co-founder and Executive Vice President John Sall will offer an early, exclusive look at JMP 9. The latest version of the statistical discovery software from SAS ships Oct. 12. New features include an add-in for Microsoft Excel, the ability to display geographic data on a map and integration with the R open-source statistical programming language.
