The statistics profession is at a unique point in history. The need for valid statistical tools is greater than ever; data sets are massive, often measuring hundreds of thousands of measurements for a single subject. The field is ready to move towards clear objective benchmarks under which tools can be evaluated. Targeted learning allows (1) the full generalization and utilization of cross-validation as an estimator selection tool so that the subjective choices made by humans are now made by the machine, and (2) targeting the fitting of the probability distribution of the data toward the target parameter representing the scientific question of interest. This book is aimed at both statisticians and applied researchers interested in causal inference and general effect estimation for observational and experimental data. Part I is an accessible introduction to super learning and the targeted maximum likelihood estimator, including related concepts necessary to understand and apply these methods. Parts II-IX handle complex data structures and topics applied researchers will immediately recognize from their own research, including time-to-event outcomes, direct and indirect effects, positivity violations, case-control studies, censored data, longitudinal data, and genomic studies.

It is common wisdom that gathering a variety of views and inputs improves the process of decision making, and, indeed, underpins a democratic society. Dubbed “ensemble learning” by researchers in computational intelligence and machine learning, it is known to improve a decision system’s robustness and accuracy. Now, fresh developments are allowing researchers to unleash the power of ensemble learning in an increasing range of real-world applications. Ensemble learning algorithms such as “boosting” and “random forest” facilitate solutions to key computational issues such as face recognition and are now being applied in areas as diverse as object tracking and bioinformatics. Responding to a shortage of literature dedicated to the topic, this volume offers comprehensive coverage of state-of-the-art ensemble learning techniques, including the random forest skeleton tracking algorithm in the Xbox Kinect sensor, which bypasses the need for game controllers. At once a solid theoretical study and a practical guide, the volume is a windfall for researchers and practitioners alike.

This textbook for graduate students in statistics, data science, and public health deals with the practical challenges that come with big, complex, and dynamic data. It presents a scientific roadmap to translate real-world data science applications into formal statistical estimation problems by using the general template of targeted maximum likelihood estimators. These targeted machine learning algorithms estimate quantities of interest while still providing valid inference. Targeted learning methods within data science area critical component for solving scientific problems in the modern age. The techniques can answer complex questions including optimal rules for assigning treatment based on longitudinal data with time-dependent confounding, as well as other estimands in dependent data structures, such as networks. Included in Targeted Learning in Data Science are demonstrations with soft ware packages and real data sets that present a case that targeted learning is crucial for the next generation of statisticians and data scientists. Th is book is a sequel to the first textbook on machine learning for causal inference, Targeted Learning, published in 2011. Mark van der Laan, PhD, is Jiann-Ping Hsu/Karl E. Peace Professor of Biostatistics and Statistics at UC Berkeley. His research interests include statistical methods in genomics, survival analysis, censored data, machine learning, semiparametric models, causal inference, and targeted learning. Dr. van der Laan received the 2004 Mortimer Spiegelman Award, the 2005 Van Dantzig Award, the 2005 COPSS Snedecor Award, the 2005 COPSS Presidential Award, and has graduated over 40 PhD students in biostatistics and statistics. Sherri Rose, PhD, is Associate Professor of Health Care Policy (Biostatistics) at Harvard Medical School. Her work is centered on developing and integrating innovative statistical approaches to advance human health. Dr. Rose’s methodological research focuses on nonparametric machine learning for causal inference and prediction. She co-leads the Health Policy Data Science Lab and currently serves as an associate editor for the Journal of the American Statistical Association and Biostatistics.

Welcome to The Amazing 8-Day, Super-Simple, Scripted Guide to Teaching or Learning Fractions. I have attempted to do just what the title says: make learning fractions super simple. I have also attempted to make it fun and even ear-catching. The reason for this is not that I am a frustrated stand-up comic, but because in my fourteen years of teaching the subject, I have come to realize that my jokes, even the bad ones, have a crazy way of sticking in my students' heads. And should I use a joke (even a bad one) repetitively, the associations become embedded in their brains, many times to their chagrin! What is so different about this book? First of all, it is scripted, so that tutors, parents and teachers alike can deliver the lessons easily and without frustration. Secondly, the scripts and lessons have been carefully crafted to be ageless -- that is, to apply to any learner, based on age or level of mathematical mastery. Finally, the lessons have been carefully culled and edited over a decade in order to include the most necessary information in a finite and reasonable timetable, something (in this educator's opinion) other books seem to lack.

Imagine a technique that would allow you to conduct your own explorations into consciousness. Imagine that this technique is safe, inexpensive, easy to use, and endlessly versatile. Imagine Hemi-Sync. Invented by sound engineer Robert A. Monroe more than 30 years ago, Hemi-Sync uses audio technology to synchronize the functioning of the two hemispheres of the brain. For more than three decades, people have been finding more and more creative uses for it. So many uses, in fact, that it?s time for an overview of various practical applications Hemi-Sync appeals to professionals in many disciplines. Today trainers and workshop presenters in some twenty countries and individuals from fifty countries have traveled to attend courses employing Hemi-Sync at The Monroe Institute in Virginia. Countless more use Hemi-Sync CDs and tapes for specific purposes. Focusing the Whole Brain provides a readable introduction to a whole new world of abilities greater than you ever thought possible

Creating a learning to learn school is a book for heads, senior managers and teachers interested in developing better schools, classrooms and learners. It is based on two years of ground-breaking research in 25 schools by over 100 teachers and many thousands of pupils. The research explored a variety of approaches to teaching pupils how they learn and evaluated the impact on standards, pupil motivation and teacher morale. Creating a learning to learn school sets out: - what we mean by 'learning to learn' - why 'learning to learn' is important today - the implications of 'learning to learn' for the government's educational reforms - the
