Linear regression plays a big part in the everyday life of a data analyst, but the results aren’t always satisfactory. What if you could drastically improve prediction accuracy in your regression with a new model that handles missing values, interactions, AND nonlinearities in your data?

In this follow-up to Part 1, three techniques that take advantage of advanced modeling features and can help extract additional insight are reviewed:

  • Stochastic gradient boosting
  • Nonlinear regression splines
  • Modeling automation

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