This blog is dedicated to exploring statistics, science, and their myriad interactions in our modern world, as construed by Nima Hejazi. The scope is necessarily broad – hopefully, ideas from nonparametric statistics, semiparametric theory, high-dimensional probability, machine learning, causal inference, information theory, optimization, statistical computing, data science, applied statistics, and computational biology will be explored, to varying degrees of depth. In nearly all cases, the goal of a post will be to explore the topic at hand with an eye towards examining its relationship with statistics, science and policy.

At no time and under no circumstances are the ideas expressed here necessarily endorsed by any organization with which I may be affiliated, whether an employer, funding agency, or whatever else.

Trivialities: Though it emerged rather whimsically, the name of this blog merits some explanation – specifically, the term “almost surely”, from the notion of almost sure convergence, first captured my attention when I was studying stochastic convergence theory. In particular, this choice of title seems rather fitting given the nature of the topics to which this blog is dedicated.
