Event Information

In this session, we’ll discuss ways of comparing possible regression models and choosing the “best” one for prediction or analysis. In different business and research settings, the word “best” might mean different things. For example, if you need to be able to explain your model to a broad audience, you may want to prioritize interpretability over small gains in accuracy. By the end of this session, you’ll understand some of the most common methods for choosing a model.
