In Praise of Small Data: Statistical and Data Science
Nancy Reid, Department of Statistical Sciences, University of Toronto
Statistical science has a 200-year history of advances in theory and application. Data science is a relatively newly defined area of enquiry developing from the explosion in the ubiquitous collection of data. The interplay between these fields, and their interactions with science, are a topic of lively discussion among statisticians. This talk will highlight some research in statistical science that is motivated by new developments in data science.
