An introduction to machine learning in Stata

when 27 September 2019 - 27 September 2019
language English

Over the last few years we have experienced an unprecedented explosion in the availability of data relating to social, economic, financial and health-related phenomena. Today researchers, professionals and policy makers have therefore access to enormous datasets (so-called Big Data) containing an abundance of information regarding individuals, companies and institutions.

Target group

Researchers and professionals working in biostatistics, economics, epidemiology, social and political sciences and public health wishing to implement Machine Learning techniques in Stata.

Course aim

Machine learning has evolved in response to both the need to analyse extremely large databases and the availability of both sophisticated software and extremely powerful computer capacity. Machine learning, an application of artificial intelligence, offers a relatively new approach to data analysis, which trains systems to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed, relying instead on patterns and inference in the data.
