Join Ross Metusalem for a complimentary seminar introducing statistical modeling and exploring how to apply the concept effectively. Through a variety of case studies, you'll learn to build better and more useful models with advanced predictive modeling techniques, such as regression, neural networks and decision trees. You'll learn to partition your data into training, validation and test sets to prevent overfitting. And you'll see how to use comparison techniques to find the best predictive model.
Predictive models can be used to answer questions such as:
- What are the key cost drivers that affect revenue?
- Which customers are likely to upgrade their current products or services?
- Which transactions will prove to be fraudulent?
- Which lots are bound to fail and should be pre-emptively scrapped to avoid waste and release capacity?
- How likely is a customer to pay back a loan?
This seminar will be of interest to scientists, engineers, business analysts, marketing analysts and anyone who wants to explore data and learn how predictive modeling can help them use the data they have today to better predict tomorrow.
