On 9 November 2018 the Bank of Italy, together with the y–SIS Group, will host a StaTalk on 'New Challenges in Official Statistics'.
StaTalks are free, one-day workshops on statistical topics whose seminars feature introductory tutorials and more advanced research topics. Mainly aimed at Master's and PhD students, as well as at postdocs and young researchers, StaTalks make possible a more productive interaction between presenters and participants.
Subjects at the November seminar will include big data, machine learning, record linkage, and how these new methodologies will impact on Official Statistics.
The programme includes presentations by researchers from the Bank of Italy, Istat and academic scholars. A round table will conclude the conference.
