Our classical statistical arsenal for extracting truth from data often fails to produce correct predictions. Uncertainty, blurry evidence and multiple possible solutions may trip up even the best interrogator. Info-metrics – the science of modeling, reasoning, and drawing inferences under conditions of insufficient and noisy information – provides a consistent and efficient framework for constructing models and theories with minimal assumptions. Situated at the intersection of information theory, statistical inference, and economic/econometric modeling, info-metrics reveals the simplest solution, model or story, that is hidden in the observed information. My talk will be based on my new book ‘Foundations of Info-Metrics: Modeling, Inference, and Imperfect Information,’ http://info-metrics.org/ in which I develop and examine the theoretical underpinning of info-metrics and provide extensive interdisciplinary applications. I will discuss the basic ideas via a small number of graphical representations of the model and theory and will then present a number of interdisciplinary real-world examples of using that framework for modeling and inference.
