Machine learning in the news

I saw a couple of stories in the news about machine learning this week so I thought I’d share them.

My favorite part of the teen drinking study is that they pulled together complicated data from a variety of sources, but in the end they used a fairly simple model (penalized logistic regression, with cross-validation to tune the model) that can be implemented in any standard statistical software package.
