The team Statistical Learning develops practice-oriented applications of statistical methods in economics, natural and social sciences. Estimation and testing methods as well as the construction of interpretable models play an important role. The aim is always to gain valuable insights from data, for example to save resources and costs or to increase benefits and efficiency through sophisticated forecasts.
