Summary
What's the worst sound in the entire world? It's a question that's certain to produce more than one opinion. To get as many answers as possible, acoustic engineer Trevor Cox created an Internet experiment that generated millions of responses to the query. Cox also developed a system of compiling, organizing, and interpreting the results, and he describes his investigation in this fascinating video. Viewers will gain insight into the collection and analysis of scientific data, quantitative and qualitative research methods, and the role of the peer review process-the scientific community's time-tested way of validating new findings.
