Talk: I’m doing a talk on how some NBA players are better than others on taking advantage of bad calls by refs. I’ll be covering my process in finding insight in a domain sphere that I don’t know very well – sports!
Here are some techniques I’ll be covering:
• synthesizing which pieces of criteria together have larger implications (i.e. do the bad calls turn games)
• thinking about the problem I wanted to solve and how the data has to be reshaped to fit it
• developing very strong knowledge of at least 1 player
• watching the bad calls/fouls to understand the scenario in which it occurred
