Sebastian Thrun asked his student to get the word out in an effort to create an enrollment record for an online course.

I took a statistics class once a long time ago, and the one thing I remember is the professor saying "Give a good Statistician the raw data and he will prove anything you want."

This I heard more recently, "63% of all statistics are made up on the spot."
It turns out that in the robotic car he built, he uses a lot of statistical techniques to locate the vehicle among obstacles. His car works pretty well so there must be something to it.
