Our Mar 1-2 course is completely full, so we have scheduled an
overflow course at the same location, Mar 29-30.
This two-day course will give a detailed overview of statistical models
for regression and classification. Known as machine-learning in
computer science and artificial intelligence, and pattern recognition
in engineering, this is a hot field with powerful applications in
finance, science and industry.
This is a very popular course, normally offered only twice a year in the U.S.
At our recent course in Chicago, participants were asked
to rate the course on a scale from 1 (poor) to 5 (outstanding).
The median score was 5!
[The mean was 4.6, with a sample size of 55]
