The final presentation of the day was the third talk by the Princeton statistician S. S. Wilks, who accompanied his remarks on statistical inference “with material on slides”. This is the only mention of such technology in the history of the section. gave the other notable lecture that year on game theory, the second of his three.

Professor Cramer, author of the pivotal Mathematical Methods of Statistics (), examines problems in the theory of stochastic processes that can be considered as generalizations of problems in the classical theory of statistical inference.

Michael I. Jordan is the Pehong Chen Distinguished Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Department of Statistics at the University of California, Berkeley.

His research interests bridge the computational, statistical, cognitive and biological sciences, and have focused in recent years on Bayesian nonparametric analysis, probabilistic graphical. Among the honors Wilks enjoyed in his lifetime, were the presidency of American Statistical Association in and the presidency of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics in In he was invited to give the Institute's Rietz Lectures.

In the University of Iowa honored him with a. Although Wilks’s various sets of course notes eventually appeared as textbooks such as Statistical Inference (), Mathematical Statistics () and Elementary Statistical Analysis (), Wilks was criticized for holding back, failing to apply his principles about publishing new findings to textbooks, despite the needs of the times.

Abstract. A common format for a course in advanced statistical inference is to accept as given a parametric family of statistical or probability models and then to proceed to develop what is an almost exclusively model-dependent theory of inference.

In statistics, maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) is a method of estimating the parameters of a probability distribution by maximizing a likelihood function, so that under the assumed statistical model the observed data is most probable.

The point in the parameter space that maximizes the likelihood function is called the maximum likelihood estimate. The logic of maximum likelihood is both. By Neyman's work was becoming known not only in England and Poland but also in other parts of Europe and in America.
