DTSC13-307: Advanced Statistical Learning Models


This subject extends the investigation of modern statistical modelling techniques initiated in Statistical Learning and Regression Models. Topics include models for correlated data including spatial and mixed-effects models, as well as Bayesian hierarchical models including discussion of Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) techniques for calculating posterior estimates, and modern applied re-sampling methods for developing robust measures of model accuracy.  The programming language R will be used in this subject.
