  • New features in both XLMiner Platform V2015 and XLMiner Pro V2015 include feature selection methods, "partition-on-the-fly" for all classification and prediction methods, ROC curves for classification and RROC curves for prediction algorithms, variable "screening" for collinearity and sparsity in multiple linear regression and logistic regression, and confidence intervals and prediction intervals in multiple regression.
