The power of pixels: Modelling with images

Anna Fergusson (University of Auckland) presented two workshops using examples from her recent AMA plenary.

Anna demonstrated how to build models with images and explore them in more detail. She looked at ways you can
start incorporating data science (and digital technologies) within your teaching of the current statistics curriculum. How are photos of cats different from photos of dogs? Is Google to blame for student’s lack of care about squares? Anna guided teachers to find answers to these questions using modelling tasks she designed.
