Discovery in High Dimensions

Scientists collect data about genes, stars, and human behavior. Corporations collect data about purchases and products. The government collects data about people and policies. Professor Banks will discuss how these data contain important hidden structure, and the new kinds of statistical procedures that are able to discover it.
