Title: The Joy of Collaboration
Abstract: One myth about genius is that of the solitary scientist and the “Ah Ha moment”. There is Archimedes and his “Eureka!” in the bathtub. There is Isaac Newton bonked on the head with an apple leading to the laws of gravity. There is Edison and the light bulb. In my view, these apocryphal stories are counterproductive. This is especially true nowadays as most if not all scientific and engineering work is done in teams.
My own work in statistics and design of experiments has almost always been in collaboration. Personally, I vastly prefer this mode of work because I have found that two heads are indeed better than one.
This talk will pay homage to my many collaborators with a goal of empowering others to seek out collaboration as a joyful mode of work.
