nAn Introduction to Variable Selection Using Advanced Regression Technique
s\n\nSpeakers: \n\nClay Barker\, Principal Research Statistician Develop
er at JMP\n\nDate: Nov. 9th\, 3pm – 4pm CET\n\nAbstract:\n\n"Less is m
ore" may seem like a trite expression\, but it is a useful motto when it c
omes to building regression models. As data sets get bigger and we may hav
e hundreds of predictors or more\, powerful tools to help us choose a subs
et of predictors for explaining our response variable are more important t
han ever before. In this webinar\, we will introduce a handful of automate
d variable selection techniques like forward selection and the Lasso. Atte
ndees will also learn how to evaluate regression models using informatio
n criteria (like the AIC) and cross validation. The Generalized Regression
platform in JMP Pro will be used to demonstrate the techniques on example
data sets. \n\nBio:\n\nClay Barker is a Principal Research Statistician
Developer for JMP\, a subsidiary of SAS. While his focus has been on deve
loping variable selection tools for generalized linear models\, Clay has
also developed tools in for a variety of analyses including nonlinear reg
ression\, wavelets\, and clustering. Clay earned his PhD in statistics f
rom North Carolina State University.\n\n\n\n \n\n \n\nhttps://conference
