The twenty-first century has seen a breathtaking expansion of statistical methodology, both in scope and in influence. 'Big data', 'data science', and 'machine learning' have become familiar terms in the news, as statistical methods are brought to bear upon the enormous data sets of modern science and commerce/10(22). ♥ Book Title: Computer Age Statistical Inference ♣ Name Author: Bradley Efron ∞ Launching: Info ISBN Link: ⊗ Detail ISBN code: ⊕ Number Pages: Total sheet ♮ News id: Sj1yDAAAQBAJ Download File Start Reading ☯ Full Synopsis: "Take an exhilarating journey through the modern revolution in statistics with two of the ringleaders.

Most of our familiar statistical methods, such as hypothesis testing, linear regression, analysis of variance, and maximum likelihood estimation, were designed to be implemented on mechanical calculators. Modern electronic computation has encouraged a host of new statistical methods that require fewer distributional assumptions than their predecessors and can be applied to more Cited by: Computer age statistical inference focuses a lot on history and philosophy, specifically on putting methods into categories (this method counts as frequentist while this one counts as fisherian). I found this somewhat interesting, but it was kind of over emphasized.
