University of Tampere Videos

1 April 2014 No Comment

The University of Tampere in Tampere, Finland, hosted two conferences on statistics (and related matrix theory) in 1987 and 1990. The videos of these conferences have now been published on the university’s YouTube channel.

These videos were originally recorded on VHS tapes, which were ‘found’ two years ago during a move. They have been digitized and edited by Jarmo Niemelä and Reijo Sund. The conferences took place before so many of today’s high-tech tools existed, and it is interesting to see how well people (e.g., George Box with his ‘magic’ transparencies) managed. The performers in the videos are the following:
