Wand and Dr Joanna J.J. Wang, we are seeking applicants for a full scholarship for study towards a doctoral degree tied to the project's objectives.
Regression is a mainstay of data analysis, statistics, machine learning and data science but is in continual need of enhancement in the face of technological change.
