Statistical Learning, Inference and Models
October 16, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Abstract: The Canadian Statistical Sciences Institute and the Fields Institute for Research in the Mathematical Sciences recently completed a six month thematic research program on this topic. I will give an overview of the topics covered with emphasis on linkages between different areas, common problems, and common strategies. While the program was only able to cover a small fraction of the world of “Big Data”, the breadth of the material covered by the large number of speakers was very stimulating.
