"Better Prediction Using Machine Learning and Regression Models"

Abstract: Using real data, we’ll discuss how to decide if machine learning and/or regression models are appropriate for prediction, then we’ll do the analyses. Finally, we’ll discuss how to present results from these analyses in ways that are useful to our collaborators.
