Fisher information

Hi,

 

I have a question about the exercise 1 of serie 12. I don't really understand why the variance is the inverse of the fisher information?

 

Thanks,

 

Jad

This is a standard result for maximum likelihood estimators under regularity conditions. You'll see a proof of this if you take the Statistical Theory course next year.
