Variable Selection Methods for Predictive Models

Hi there, let Paul Kolm feed your mind September 7, 2017.

Selecting variables or risk factors for inclusion in predictive models poses several challenges. There are a variety of methods - old and new - that are used to select variables. In this presentation, we will summarize each of the methods, comment on their strengths and weaknesses, and illustrate some of the newer methods with concrete examples. Finally, we will discuss measures used to assess the validity and usefulness of a predictive model.
