The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) has announced their membership selections for 2019, leading researchers from across all disciplines, who are chosen for their scientific and scholarly achievements. In their recognition of Professor Hastie, Academy representatives noted that his many books and articles “are compulsory reading for apprentice data scientists.”
Hastie was one of the first to grasp the potential of computers for data analysis. He played a key role in the application of modern, computer-intensive statistical methods and it is thanks to him that researchers are increasingly able to tackle ever more complex data issues.
It is thanks to Trevor as well, that we can offer sincere congratulations on this newest honor!
