Short course: Statistical Learning and Data Mining II:

                tools for tall and wide data

Oct 31-Nov 1, 2005

This is a *new* two-day course on statistical models for data mining, inference and prediction. It is the third in a series, and follows our past
offerings "Modern Regression and Classification", and "Statistical Learning and Data Mining".

In this course we emphasize the tools useful for tackling modern-day data analysis problems. We focus on both "tall" data ( N>p where N=#cases, p=#features) and "wide" data (p>N). The tools include gradient boosting, SVMs and
kernel methods, random forests, lasso and LARS, ridge regression and GAMs, supervised principal components, and cross-validation. We also present some interesting case studies in a variety of application areas. All our examples are developed using the S language, and most of the procedures we discuss are implemented in publically available R packages.
