# Salford: The Evolution of Regression Modeling: Watch on Demand

This webinar series addresses the problems of classical regression and improvements such as regularized and nonlinear regression, and modern ensemble and data mining approaches. Very useful to any data miner or data scientist.

**The Evolution of Regression Modeling: From Classical Linear Regression to Modern Ensembles**

Watch On-Demand!

Instructor: Dan Steinberg, CEO and Founder

**Class Description: ** Regression is one of the most popular modeling methods, but the classical approach has significant problems. This webinar series addresses these problems. Are you working with larger datasets? Is your data challenging? Does your data include missing values, nonlinear relationships, local patterns and interactions? This webinar series is for you! We will cover improvements to conventional and logistic regression, and will include a discussion of classical, regularized, and nonlinear regression, as well as modern ensemble and data mining approaches.
