University of Sydney Statistics Society (StatSoc)
Welcome to the USyd StatSoc! Statistics is usually something people tend to avoid but actually surrounds us every day. Randomness appears in modelling, machine learning, and even something like quantum physics! All these things would be impossible without statistics, hence we would like to invite you to explore the deeper connections of statistics to mathematics and science.
Why join us?
The 21st century is the age of information, there has been no shortage of proof for that. In the past few decades, the amount of data has been increasing exponentially; statistics has transformed from merely being a tool to an actual branch of science. If you are interested in the state-of-art progresses made in the community, you don't want to miss out on our events.
Famous FOMO experiences on offer
Weekly talks and free pizzas are the usuals!
Meet ups & Community
Our society has connections with multiple technology and quantitative firms, along with a few university departments such as the School of Mathematics & Statistics, School of Business Analytics, etc. Besides weekly talks, we also set up plenty of opportunities for you to network with our industry partners and prolific academics.
