Statistics

Imagine that in the year 2050, a Fields medal is awarded to a woman for her refoundation of statistics and its amazing implications in other sciences. Statistics is a subfield of mathematics which is not well considered by most mathematicians. A consequence is a general lack of statistical culture for the average mathematician, and also the massive presence of women in statistics (they avoid the competition with males by doing so). I encourage young mathematicians to open their mind, to learn the problems and concepts of statistics, and to teach statistics. By this way, they will find a job more easily, and they will improve the relationships between mathematics and the real world. There are no boundaries inside mathematics. The limits are in mathematicians minds, not in mathematics. So be curious! Impressive examples are given by Persi Diaconis and Terence Tao.
