First of all, Prof. Fan shared his memory of Peter Hall, from their first meeting to their last collaborated paper, and mentioned the contributions of Peter Hall to Nonparametric Modeling.
Then he illustrated the evolution of Nonparametric ideas as follows:
Now he started his talk, CEASE: Communication-Efficient Accurate Statistical Estimation.
- Distributed Estimation and Inference
- Distributed Optimization
Distributed Estimation in Large Sample Regimes
Basic idea of proof
Multi-step Estimator and Statistical Analysis
