DESCRIPTION:How would you try to solve a linear system of equa
tions with more unknowns than equations? Of course
\, there are infinitely many solutions\, and yet t
his is the sort of the problem statisticians face
with many modern datasets\, arising in genetics\,
imaging\, finance and many other fields. Whatâ€™s wo
rse\, our equations are often corrupted by noisy m
easurements! In this talk I will introduce a stati
stical method called the Lasso that has been at th
e centre of the huge amount of research that has g
one into solving these problems. \n
