**At its conference last year, the RSS hosted a talk by Google’s chief economist, Hal Varian.**

Footage of his talk is now available to view here:

In his talk, Hal outlined how statistics are used at Google in a number of areas, what kind of skills Google finds valuable, and what the future might hold for data analysis in technology-intensive industries.

The talk is one of a number of sessions at the conference filmed by the RSS. Footage of other sessions will be uploaded on the RSS conference website in due course.
