COS Distinguished Speaker: Dr. Nancy Reid

Enrollment trends in statistics programs of study

As more data become available, the questions asked become more complex, and "Big Data" can quickly turn into small data. Statistical science has developed an arsenal of methods and models for learning under uncertainty over its 200 year history. Some thoughts on the interplay between statistical and data science, their interactions with science, and the role of the formal use of probability will be presented.

Dr. Nancy Reid is a Professor of Statistical Sciences at the University of Toronto. She has been awarded the highest honor by the National Academy of Sciences.
