Description

Statistics plays a crucial role in the extraction of information from physics measurements, and its scope has been steadily increasing in the XXI century, pushed in particular by development of machine learning tools. In this talk will be given an introduction of the status of statistics practice, relying on the driving example of HEP, and a look at the goals for the three days of talks, bringing to focus a few specific topics of special relevance covered by the session.
