Past events

  • The art of predictive analytics: More data, same models

    Fri, 3 Feb 2012, 00:00 - 02:00 in New York, United States

    We're really excited for our next event with Joseph Turian!  Come at 6:30 to network with the group.ABSTRACT:This talk will present a handful of recipes for cheaply improving the accuracy of existing models.Sure, if you want more accuracy, you can read the latest papers and spend a bunch of time implementing new fangled models. It's definitely fun to brag about how you took the long road.

  • Bayesian Generalized Linear Models and Appropriate Default Prior

    5-6 Jan 2012 in New York, United States

    For our first event of 2012, we are excited to have Dr. Andrew Gelman, Professor of Statistics and Political Science at Columbia University, present his work to the group.This event will be sponsored by Revolution Analytics who will be providing pizza AND will be raffling off a full licence of Revolution R Enterprise version 5.0!!  So come early to join the fun! The license will be for 6 months and will be extended to a year if the winner participates in a short phone survey after 6 months.

For each classifier, we will formalize the problem, formulate an objective function, and discuss how to optimize it. Using different data sets, we will compare how the two classifiers stack up to each other in practical settings. The role of L1 and L2 regularization in machine learning will also be discussed.
