Assistance for the organisation of ESTP Courses – Machine learning and Logistic regression

From 25th to 30th March, DevStat organised two training courses in Eurostat premises (Luxembourg). The first one, by José CERVERA-FERRI (DevStat’s CEO) and Prof. Iván ARRIBAS (Univ. of Valencia) on Machine Learning Econometrics, presented methods for alternative econometric estimation using a Machine Learning approach, including linear (Ridge and LASSO methods) and non-linear (Random Forests, Support Vector Machines) methods. The second one, by Prof. ARRIBAS, presented Logistic regression models, widely used in statistical classification problems. These course are implemented within a contract with Eurostat to supply training to statisticians of the European Statistical System, and for staff of the European Commission.
