A data scientist studied the transcripts for every episode of the hit TV show Friends to try and determine who the real “star” of the show is. Which Friend is the show really about? Read the article to find out more.
Assuming you are familiar with the show Friends (why are you doing this badge otherwise?! There are plenty of others that might interest you more!), write a short paragraph explaining which Friend you think is the main character of the show. Explain your reasons for making that choice.
Then read the article linked above.
In a second paragraph, explain the data scientist’s reasoning for making his choice. Include the five categories (graph headings) that he studied and how they helped him to arrive at his conclusion.
Then, in a final paragraph, state a data point that you think the data scientist should have also included to help make his decision. What other information do you think could help decide who the most important character is on Friends? Do you think including this information would change the results of the study?
