Should you play the lottery? If so, is there a certain way you should play? ACEMS Director Peter Taylor was interviewed by The Weekly Review and breaks down those questions and more, as he looks at the numbers involved in playing: "The Weekly Review: How to win the lottery"
A team of researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) at QUT and their collaborators in the Computational Cardiovascular Science group at the University of Oxford have developed a novel method for constructing a virtual population for use in cardiac research.
Two employees from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) recently completed secondments with ACEMS, and it’s quite clear that both didn’t waste a chance to learn about statistics and do and try whatever they could to get the full ACEMS experience.
Three ACEMS Researchers from The University of Adelaide were part of a team that won the 2017 Eureka Prize for Excellence in Interdisciplinary Scientific Research.
Adam “Ben” Rohrlach, Prof Nigel Bean, and Dr Simon “Jonathan” Tuke provided the statistical research used in this landmark study, which uses genetics to help link Australian Aboriginals to the land that they have always claimed through their stories.
The Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies (COPSS) honours ACEMS Chief Investigator Aurore Delaigle with one of its top awards, the George W. Snedecor Award.
Prof Delaigle was presented the award at the recent Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM) in Baltimore, Maryland, USA. The award honours biennially a researcher who is instrumental in the development of statistical theory and analysis involving biological data.
