For many years, Statistical Science has published ‘Conversations’ with some of the many distinguished leaders in statistics and probability [see list, below]. These interviews are one of the most popular features of the journal. The personal opinions and experiences given in these interviews add a human touch, while also giving insights into the intellectual history of our field.
By making them openly available we hope to add to a broader understanding of the important roles that statistics and probability play in science and in society more generally.
