Stats, Optimization, & Machine Learning Seminar - Adam Bloniarz

Oct. 25, 2016

Event Description: Adam Bloniarz; Department of Statistics; Google, Boulder, CO Lasso adjustments of treatment effects in randomized experiments We provide a principled way for investigators to analyze randomized experiments when the number of covariates is large. Investigators often use linear multivariate regression to analyze randomized experiments instead of simply reporting...
