Webinar: Lasso and related estimators for prediction

Overview

Duration: 1 hour
Where: Join us from anywhere!
Cost: Free—but registrations are limited

We are faced with more and more data, often with many, and poorly described or understood, variables. We can even have more variables than we do data. Classical techniques break down when applied to such data.

Lasso and elastic net are two popular machine-learning methods designed to sift through these kinds of data and extract features that have the ability to predict outcomes.

Join Di Liu, Senior Econometrician and developer at StataCorp, as he introduces Stata 16's new features for lasso and elastic net. In this webinar, Di will demonstrate how lasso and elastic net can be used for prediction with linear, binary, and count outcomes. Discover why these methods are effective and how they work.
