We are pleased to announce that Corinne Jones, current UW Statistics Ph.D. student, is one of the four recipients of the 2020 Student Paper Award for her paper entitled "End-to-end Statistical Learning, with or without Labels". The award is jointly sponsored by the American Statistical Association (ASA) Section on Statistical Computing and Section on Statistical Graphics.
The ASA Section on Statistical Computing's mission is to promote the application of computer hardware, software, and systems to statistical problems. In addition, they encourage the joint application of statistical techniques and computer technology in other fields, and act as a focal point for computer-oriented activities within the ASA. The importance of these activities is becoming even more critical with the advance of information technologies that challenge us with new problems and enormous data sets.
The ASA Section on Statistical Graphics's mission is to foster understanding and proper use of statistical graphics in statistics, in other scientific fields, in the mass media, and among the general public. In addition, they encourage the teaching of statistical graphics in universities, colleges, secondary schools, and primary schools and they encourage research in statistical graphics and provide a focus within the Association for it. The importance of these activities is becoming even more critical with the advent of enormous datasets of extremely high dimensionality.
The student award recipients will present their work in a topic-contributed session. They will also receive their award at the mixer of the Section on Statistical Computing and the Section on Statistical Graphics at the 2020 Joint Statistical Meeting (JSM) in Philadelphia.
