Webinar: The Bias / Variance Tradeoff

April 27, 2017 @ 2:30 pm - 3:15 pm

PLEASE REGISTER HERE: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/webinar-the-bias-variance-tradeoff-tickets-34030548286

Join us on Thursday, April 27th to learn from T.J. Bay, Data Scientist at Alpine Data. During his live webinar, he will introduce the general concepts of bias and variance and how they apply to machine learning models. Using linear regression, he will illustrate how a model can perform differently on unknown data. And finally, he’ll talk about some strategies to help your models perform better on new data. 

T.J. is also the instructor of our upcoming Introduction to Data Science part-time course in San Francisco.

T.J. Bay is a data scientist at Alpine Data, where he has worked on projects in finance, healthcare, manufacturing, and government. Prior to leaving academia, he taught astronomy and received a Ph.D. in physics from Stanford, where he worked on experiments to measure deviations in the strength of short-distance gravity and a novel photon detector based on superconductors. He is nearing the end of very long project that involves whiskey and rewatching every episode of Star Trek – even the animated ones.
