Introduction to Discrete Choice Models (edX)

The course introduces the theoretical foundations to choice modeling and describes the steps of operational modeling. Human behavior is complexand unpredictable. Or is it? The focus of this course is methods for predicting the behavior using mathematical models. More specifically, we'll explore choice modeling in order to obtain disaggregate [...]
