Did you miss our webinar yesterday? It's never too late to register to get the recording

Here's a brief summary of what you missed:

Part 1 of our two-part webinar series, '3 Ways to Improve Your Regression', began with a review of Ordinary Least Squares regression (OLS) and some of the common issues of standard linear regression. Improvement over OLS was shown with several data mining algorithms (nonlinear regression splines, gradient boosting, and Random Forests), using a data set on concrete strength. The webinar wrapped up with additional case studies and applications for these data mining solutions. 

If you were not able to attend the webinar broadcast, you can still sign up and receive the recording and materials.
