The scientific traditions of physics and applied mathematics have focused mainly on defining simplified models of the world amenable to analytical and numerical approximation. Today, the flood of real-world data at unprecedented levels of resolution and diversity creates opportunity for building richer scientific descriptions that combine statistical inference with "classical" models. I will...
