Linear Regression  Statistics vs Data Mining
Hi Professor Yaser/Everyone
A question about looking at regression from a stats vs data mining angle. Stats  checks for correlated variables, normality of residuals/variables (nonlinear transformations probably take care of this), homoscedasticity etc. Data Mining  as you had mentioned, we want to keep it general. Does that mean  a) we don't care about these assumptions or we do care, but they come into play later on. b) we are at a higher risk for getting misleading results. It would be nice to have your thoughts on this. Thanks, Kartik
