Lecturer: Volker Kraft
Duration: 4 hours
Many physical and virtual systems studied in scientific and business research are, by their very nature, multivariate. That is, there are many responses influenced by many input variables (or predictors) simultaneously. In this hands-on workshop you will learn how to explore, understand and exploit the relationships in complex data. All concepts and results will be presented more graphically than using formulas.
We will use real-world examples to perform tasks like correlation analysis, outlier detection or dimension reduction. The main focus will be on supervised learning using methods like Principal Components Regression (PCR) or Partial Least Squares (PLS).
All participants will get free access to pre-install JMP and are invited to bring their Windows or Mac computers to interactively explore the concepts of analyzing multivariate data. Pre-knowledge in statistics, matrix algebra or JMP are not required.
Volker Kraft is Senior Academic Ambassador for JMP in Europe, fostering and supporting the use of JMP in teaching and research. He holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (University Bochum, Germany), and used statistical methods extensively in his research in psychoacoustics and speech communication. In later positions at Vodafone and Voxeo he developed a passion for customer advocacy, developing and supporting programmes to foster the effective use of software in business. Drawing on this experience and the success of JMP's Academic Program globally, Volker is charged with enabling teachers, faculty and students in Europe who are interested in JMP to get the most from the software.
