Poster accepted at INFORMS 2016

In November I’m headed to Nashville to present at the annual conference for the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS). To preview some models I built and will be presenting, logistic and linear regression were used to make MLB predictions for 2016 (total wins and playoff status for both Chicago Cubs and White Sox). My next step is to build a webscraper to gather data and to perhaps do some agent-based modeling to enable day-by-day predictions for individual matchups (in addition to predicting the season-long trends).

I’m looking forward to presenting the initial data and of course meeting all the great people there!
