PREDICTIVE MODELING:
AN INTRODUCTION AND A DISQUISITION IN THREE PARTS


by

Max Kuhn, Ph.D.
Pfizer Inc.



Abstract

The primary goal of predictive modeling (aka machine learning) (aka pattern recognition) is to produce the most accurate prediction for some quantity of interest. In this talk, I will give a brief introduction as well as a discussion on three topics: the friction between interpretability and accuracy, the role of Big Data and the current unmet needs.
