Data Science, Big Data and Statistics – can we all live together?

A Tweet from Persontyle caught my attention about a great lecture by Terry Speed, a emeritus professor in statistics at University of California at Berkeley, published at Flowingdata. The lecture is part of the Chalmers Initiative Seminar on Big Data, that happened last March at Chalmers University of Technology. In the lecture, Terry Speed talks on how statisticians can play nice with big data and data science. He reports on some reflections on Big Data issues, offer some suggestions for statisticians, and summarize some theory some theory which, in his opinion, has relevance to the analysis of data, whoever does it. Worth Watching!
