I plan to present some simple and as far as I know novel statistical analyses of the data of the famous Bell-type experiments of 2015 and 2016: Delft, NIST, Vienna and Munich. After that I want to discuss the general issue of loopholes in Bell-type experiments.
Richard David Gill is a UK-born mathematician and held the chair of mathematical statistics in Leiden University. As a probability theorist and statistician, Gill is most well-known for his research on counting processes and survival analysis, some of which has appeared in a widely-used textbook. His foremost academic achievement is his early and very influential work on counting processes and survival analysis and semiparametric models. Later he worked in the other areas like quantum foundations, quantum statistics, forensic statistics. As a recognition of his achievements, he has been elected as a member of the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences and Arts and a past president of the Dutch Statistical Society. His contributions to the loophole debate concerning Bell type experiments were incorporated in all the milestone experiments of 2015.
