Speaker: Anna Dreber, Brian Nosek

Researchers have discovered that many important findings in fields such as psychology, medicine, sociology, and economics don't hold up when other researchers try to replicate them (using different datasets) or reproduce them (using the same datasets with different methods). Growing awareness about these issues is often referred to as a "crisis". This panel brings together experts from psychology, economics, and computer science for an interdisciplinary discussion of the key issues in these debates, including potential causes and remedies to increase the replicability and reproducibility of research.
