About this Episode

Dan and James chat with Fiona Fidler (University of Melbourne), who is leading the repliCATS project, which aims to develop accurate techniques to elicit estimates of the replicability of research. This is also the first time they interview a guest live!

Here's what they discuss...

  • The story behind repliCATS
  • Australia's best export, Tim Tams
  • The SCORE project organised by DARPA
  • Can anyone use the repliCATS methodology?
  • Dan, Fiona, and James talk about did their honours theses (this is roughly the Australian equivalent of a Masters)
  • What would a successful repliCATS project look like?
  • What sort of heuristics do people use to assess replicability?
  • The AIMOS conference
  • The role of replicability in public policy
  • This is Bob Katter
  • Should we be keeping the replication crisis behind closed doors?
