David L. Banks, professor of the practice of Statistical Science, received the 2022 Deming Lecture Award and delivered the Deming Lecture in early August during the 2022 Joint Statistical Meetings (JSM) in Washington, D.C. 

American Statistical Association (ASA) President Katherine Ensor and Deming Award Committee Member Amit Bhattacharyya presented Banks the award prior to his lecture, "The Future of Statistics in Industry." Banks was recognized: "For significant contributions to statistical methods and practice in government, industry, and transportation. For advances in adversarial risk analysis, data quality, and high dimensional data analysis. For leadership in the profession of statistical science.”

The annual Deming Lecture Award, presented by the ASA since 1995, was established to not only recognize the award winner's accomplishments, but to also honor those of W. Edwards Deming and enhance the awareness among the statistical community of the scope and importance of Deming's contributions.
