ECON 3886 V11 - Machine Learning For Economics
Summer Session I, May 31 - June 30, 2022
Online: MTWTh, 09:00AM - 12:00PM

This course introduces students to a set of tools for modeling and understanding (possibly big) data. It blends elements from statistics/econometrics and computer science. It is therefore interdisciplinary in nature and designed for quantitatively inclined students. The course focuses on supervised learning with applications of interest, notably in economics and finance. In the first part of the course, we will define the field, discuss the meaning of model accuracy and the bias-variance trade-off, and briefly review linear regression using R. In the second part, we will extend our study of classifiers, i.e., tools to classify observations into categories, or evaluate the probability that an observation belongs to a category. For example, determining whether (and with what probability) the economy is currently in a recession is a classification problem. Methods may include the logistic regression, the naive Bayes classifier, and the K-nearest-neighbor approach. In the third part of the course, we will study resampling methods: cross-validation and the bootstrap. In the fourth and final part, we will cover more advanced topics that may include model selection and regularization, tree-based methods, or support vector machine.
