Abstract

Big business has embraced big data with enthusiasm. It is a love‐fest; it seems they were made for each other. Should statistics make it a ménage à trois? No, says David Walker: that way lies perdition. Statisticians would lose their souls. Yes, says Kaiser Fung: the happy couple have much to offer statisticians – and will go horribly wrong without them. First, the warning voice … Kaiser Fung argues that business, big data and statistics should consummate their long‐overdue alliance.
