Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 23, 2017
Lone Star Analysis announced it will award a prize for the best suggested addition to the company’s online glossary of analytics terms.
Sentiment about analytics is increasingly in favor of transparency. Recent research by Lone Star shows the public thinks they have a “right to know” how algorithms work when it comes to issues like Credit Ratings, Safety, Health Care, Insurance Risk Ratings, School Admissions and Investments.

Transparency depends, in part on clear meaning. Steve Roemerman, Lone Star’s Chairman said, “Analytics is hot, and vocabulary is trying to keep up; it’s really confusing out there. We wanted to promote the idea that words should have meaning. So much of math and computer science depends on objective definitions. But the pace of change in analytics makes that challenging.”
“We want to encourage universities, educators and students to think critically about analytics, and to get past hype. So, we will award a $250 prize to a university student on May 15.” Roemerman said.
