OK. I'm going to throw in a quote from, of all people Pablo Picasso
Computers are useless. They only give answers.
Now, of course, computers aren't useless. But the man had a point.
The data analyst needs to use his or her brain to think up questions.
Then use it some more to figure out how to ask the computer the question so that
ithe computer will understand.
Then the computer can give the answer.
But the only thing guarding against type 3 error is the human using the computer
