Statistics in the Computer Age: Personal Reflections

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


It is a trivial observation that the computers have changed the way statistics is practiced. But has it also changed the theory of statistics and the way we teach it? I think yes—even if the changes appear to be surprisingly small in some contexts. This is an attempt to give a more detailed answer, based on experiences from my own corner of the world from 1964 till now.
