IDReC PI to talk at Royal Society of New Zealand event
‘Statistics in the 21st Century: Why Statisticians are the New Sexy Vampires, Only Pastier.' is the name of the talk that Professor Martin Hazelton is presenting at this week's Manawatu Branch of the Royal Society of New Zealand meeting.
In this talk, Professor Hazelton will give an overview of the way in which statistics has developed to meet the challenges posed by today's "big data", and will outline some current hot areas in statistical research and the changing face of statistics through examples from epidemiology, engineering, genetics and politics.
The talk is at 7.30pm Tuesday, 19 March, Te Manawa - Art Gallery, 326 Main Street, Palmerston North.
