“… The statistical evaluation of huge amounts of data is becoming increasingly important. However, the methods and work stages used for this purpose are not always ideally coordinated or compatible with external factors (distributed/limited storage space, limited computing power, data protection, etc.). The Research Unit “Mathematical Statistics in the Information Age – Statistical Efficiency and Computational Tractability”, jointly funded with the Austrian Fund for the Promotion of Scientific Research, aims to address this challenge with regard to pre-processed data and the statistical models underlying the analyses. For this purpose, underlying mathematical principles and their algorithmic formulation have to be entirely newly developed in many cases.  …”
