Discussion Questions from "The Evolution of Regression"

Posted by Heather Hinman on Thu, Apr 4, 2013 @ 11:30 AM

During the course of Salford Systems' 4-part webinar series "The Evolution of Regression," some very good questions from the audience have made their way to presenter Dr. Dan Steinberg, CEO and Founder. Here are a few responses that we thought would benefit everyone who is interested in regression, nonlinear regression, regularized regression, decision tree ensembles and post-processing techniques.

Hands-On Webinar "The Evolution of Regression Modeling"

Posted by Heather Hinman on Tue, Mar 12, 2013 @ 04:08 AM

Part 2 - Hands-On Component is this Friday! [March 15, 2013, 10 am PST (San Diego, CA)]

Overcoming Linear Regression Limitations

Regression is one of the most popular modeling methods, but the classical approach has significant problems. This webinar series addresses these problems. Are you working with larger datasets? Is your data challenging? Does your data include missing values, nonlinear relationships, local patterns and interactions? This webinar series is for you! We will cover improvements to conventional and logistic regression, and will include a discussion of classical, regularized, and nonlinear regression, as well as modern ensemble and data mining approaches. This series will be of value to any classically trained statistician or modeler.
