The GenIQ Model: A Method that
Lets the Data Specify the Model Bruce Ratner, Ph.D. Typically, the data analyst approaches a problem directly with an "inflexible" designed procedure specifically for that purpose. For example, the statistical problem of prediction of a continuous target variable (e.g., profit) is solved by the "old" classical standard ordinary leastsquares (OLS) regression model. Atypically, the new machine learning GenIQ Model©, a "flexible" nonparametric, assumptionfree approach, Lets the Data Specify the Model (equation). Specifically, GenIQ let's the data specify the model automatically – data mines for new variables, performs variable selection, then specifies the model equation.
