Statistics and data science have developed as separate fields but stand to gain enormously by learning from each other.

The Section on Data Science aims to stimulate such cross-fertilization by bringing together researchers and practitioners in the fields of statistics on the one hand and machine learning and data science on the other. Membership of the section is open to all those who are interested in both theory and applications of data science.

With the start of the section, an article was published in STAtOR (2017- Issue 1- in Dutch): https://dspace.library.uu.nl/handle/1874/360431
