    About Dr. Trevor Hastie
    Hastie received his bachelor's degree from Rhodes University, South Africa in 1976, his master's degree from the University of Cape Town in 1979, and his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1984. Hastie's research focuses on applied statistics, specifically in the fields of statistical modeling, bioinformatics and machine learning. Before becoming a Stanford professor in 1994, he worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories for almost a decade, where he contributed to the development of the statistical modeling environment popular in the R computing system. Hastie has published six books and over 200 articles, and he has co-edited a large software library on modeling tools for statistical computing. Recent awards include the Breiman Award from the American Statistical Association in 2020 and the University of Bologna Sigillum Magnum in 2019.

He is a fellow of the American Statistical Association, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the Royal Statistical Society.

    Lecture Abstract

    Cross-validation is ubiquitous in data science, and is used for both model selection and assessment. Yet in some regards it is poorly understood. In this talk we discuss three aspects of CV:
    •    What CV estimates?
    •    Confidence intervals for prediction error using nested CV.
    •    Out-of-bag error for random-forests and standard error estimates.
    The research discussed is joint work with Stephen Bates, a post-doctoral researcher at University of California, Berkeley; Samyak Rajanala, a doctoral student at Stanford University; and Rob Tibshirani, a statistics professor at Stanford.
    This lecture is dedicated to the late Leo Breiman, a distinguished statistician at the University of California, Berkeley, and Colin Mallows, a renowned statistician who worked at Bell Labs and AT&T Labs for forty years.
