Institute for Statistical Science

Several developments over the last decade have pushed Statistics into the heart of science, commerce, and policy-making: new techniques, more powerful computers, and of course much more data. In the Institute of Statistical Science, we cover the whole spectrum of modern Statistics, from theoretical methods designed explicitly for multi-core computers and big data-sets, to providing planning and time-critical advice to policymakers concerning civil emergencies.
