Where Can I Find an Example of the Use of X?

As mentioned elsewhere, MoS exists partly as a vehicle through which I can learn about the real-world application of a range of statistical modelling and data analytic techniques. In the lists that follow I've attempted to catalogue them all but if you find one that I haven't please let me know and I'll add it.

(2016 Update: I've not amended or expanded the information that follows in quite a while. If you can't find what you're after, try searching using the options under the Search The Site section in the navigation bar on the right.)

Statistical Modelling / Machine Learning Techniques

The machine learning community distinguishes between mathematical algorithms for regression and those for classification, a dichotomy I'll also use here.

Regression Algorithms

Regression algorithms allow us to map from a feature space - that is, a set of regressors - to a real (possibly bounded) value - a probability, a team score or a total score for example.

Classification Algorithms

Classification algorithms allow us to map from a feature space to a label - a type of grand final, a type of home-and-away season game for example.

Data Analysis Techniques

Most of the data analysis techniques I deploy in MoS are so routine they don't deserve chronicling here.
