Short course: Statistical Learning and Data Mining II:
                 tools for tall and wide data

Oct 31-Nov 1, 2005

This is a *new* two-day course on statistical models for data mining,
inference and prediction. It is the third in a series, and follows our
past offerings "Modern Regression and Classification", and
"Statistical Learning and Data Mining".

In this course we emphasize the tools useful for tackling modern-day
data analysis problems. We focus on both "tall" data ( N>p where
N=#cases, p=#features) and "wide" data (p>N). The tools include
gradient boosting, SVMs and kernel methods, random forests, lasso and
LARS, ridge regression and GAMs, supervised principal components, and
cross-validation.  We also present some interesting case studies in a
variety of application areas. All our examples are developed using the
S language, and most of the procedures we discuss are implemented in
publically available R packages.
