Researchers look to add statistical safeguards to data analysis and visualization software

Modern data visualization software makes it easy for users to explore large datasets in search of interesting correlations and new discoveries. But that ease of use—the ability to ask question after question of a dataset with just a few mouse clicks—comes with a serious pitfall: it increases the likelihood of making false discoveries.
