Quant analytics: Is it possible to improve a predictive model using the data that come after the model is applied?

The new data are supposed to be biased towards the treatment. So how to utilize them in this case? Thanks.

That depends on the model in question. Your initial question is, unfortunately, too general to give a specific answer. You should possibly look into Bayesian Inference or hierarchial Bayesian modelling, with your initial model as your prior.

 

Yes, consider a Self Organizing Map (SOM). This separates your variables and allows you to find those that have higher correlations between the other variables. “After this model is applied,” you can formulate weights based on these results into a stronger model such as a neural network.

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
