Course Level

Statistical machine learning (often referred to simply as statistical learning) has arisen as a recent subfield of statistics. It emphasizes the interpretability, precision, and uncertainty of machine learning models. This course assesses the accuracy of several supervised and unsupervised machine learning models for both regression and classification. Topics include the bias-variance trade-off, training and test datasets, resampling methods, shrinkage and dimension reduction methods, non-linear modeling techniques such as regression splines and generalized additive models, and decision tree-based methods. Applications include examples from medicine, biology, marketing, finance, insurance, and sports.
