Research by CR Rao.

CR Rao analyzed three basic findings in 1945 as part of his research. These paved the way for modern statistical methods and led to the widespread use of these statistical tools in science. The first of these three is the Cramer-Rao lower bound. It represents the best way to estimate statistical quantity. Second is the Rao-Blackwell theory. A prediction can be used to improve. The third is the development of a new interdisciplinary field for the breadth of information geometry. It helps to extract information from data more efficiently.
