Glasgow local group: Statistics - a data science for the 21st century

Written by Kim Kavanagh on . Posted in Sections and local group meeting reports

On 9 February 2016, a record Glasgow local group attendance of around 100 packed into the University of Strathclyde Department of Mathematics and Statistics to listen to a reprise of Peter’s presidential address entitled 'Statistics: a data science for the 21st century'.

Lively comment not only took place in the room but also on twitter as is only fitting for the subject.

Prior to the local group meeting, Peter took time to meet and have lunch with around 30 career young statisticians working in the local area with inspiration provided for all.

The local group thanks Peter for taking time to visit and hopes to see him again in the future. Tweets and photos from the event are available at: #RSSGlaPres.

Full video and audio of the original presidential address delivered in June 2015 is available at https://www.statslife.org.uk/news/2331-peter-diggle-delivers-presidential-address
