You sometimes hear from some old-fashioned statisticians that data scientists know nothing about statistics, and that they – the statisticians – know everything.

Here we highlight 11 major data science contributions to statistical science. I am not aware of any statistical science contribution to data science, but if you know one, you are welcome to share.
