Calculate economic risk with regression using Python by Matteo Niccoli

Another reproducible example of regression using Python to calculate economic risk. By Matteo Niccoli (2017).



Multiple Regression in Engineering Applications by Marco Rizk

Great article. And also an eye opener, specially, for those interested in correlations. I hope you publish your scripts, data and manuscript, soon for reproducibility purposes, and the benefit of the petroleum engineering community.

Keywords: linear regression, engineering, Alternating Conditional Expectations, algorithms, transformations


Starting Bayesian with Stan

Starting Bayesian #Machinelearning with #stan and #rstats. Surprised by the fact that model recipes written in R and Stan are compiled to C++ using whatever number of cores your machine has.
