Distances and their role in robustness Markatou, Marianti


Statistical distances, divergences and similar quantities have a large history and play a funda- mental role in statistics, machine learning and associated scientific disciplines. In this talk, we first examine aspects of robustness met in biomedical applications; we then discuss the role of statistical distances in the solution of the robustness challenge. Inferential aspects facilitating scientific understanding are discussed and conclude with the need of broadening the conceptual and practical base of robustness.
