About the Institute

Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) is devoted to the research, teaching and application of statistics, natural sciences and social sciences. Founded by Professor P.C. Mahalanobis in Kolkata on 17th December, 1931, the institute gained the status of an Institution of National Importance by an act of the Indian Parliament in 1959. The Psychology Research Unit, a part of the Social Sciences Division of the Indian Statistical Institute, is continuing to conduct research on application of Statistics and Mathematics in explaining different psychological phenomena and psychological test development through different internal and external funding projects, sometimes in collaboration with scientists of other units of ISI/ or other organizations. Besides, the faculties of the unit are involved in teaching and training activities and are providing Ph.D. guidance to the research fellows. Scientists are also providing services in statistical or psychometric analysis of Psychological data.

Theme

Psychological data are very complex to analyze and interpret because of its hidden structure. It is easily affected by random errors of individual differences, differences in situations and by the interaction of individual and environment. Another significance of psychological data is multi-dimensionality. One construct is assessed through multiple sub-constructs. Again, each sub-construct is assessed through multiple consistent attributes. For prediction, psychology follows system approach and big data. Traditional statistical tools sometimes fail to capture the gamut of psychological functions implied in the data. In this connection, data mining from big data warehouse is important. Padma Vibhushan, Professor C.R. Rao, Professor of the University of Buffalo defined big data as massive amounts of very high dimension and unstructured data which are continuously produced and stored with much cheaper cost than they are used to be. The massive samples in big data are typically aggregated from multiple sources at different time points using different technologies. Some of the static big psychological data are psychiatric case history records, answer sheets of Board level examination, selection test, data of disability, health insurance data, crime research data, industrial data. Social networking sites like Facebook, twitter, you tube are dynamic data warehouse.

Objective

Psychology Research Unit of the Indian Statistical Institute has been engaged for a long time in analysis of randomized unstructured data using different multivariate statistical tools. In this winter school, distinguished experts will talk about principles, analytic techniques and application of data mining tools in psychological research. Topics will include psychological data complexity, introduction to data mining techniques, tools of data mining and its broad applications in various fields of Psychology.
