Upcoming invited talk at New England Stat Symposium (May 19)

I will be giving an invited talk on "To Explain or To Predict?" (an abridged version of the 1-hour talk) at the 2010 New England Statistics Symposium, to be held this year at Harvard. Although my talk is within the "business" invited session, it definitely extends to all sciences using statistics, and especially to statisticians who are mostly concerned with descriptive modeling (which is neither explanatory, nor predictive).
