    Selection of a system of simultaneous equations model 

    Warangkhana Keerativibool; Jirawan Jitthavech, advisor (National Institute of Development Administration, 2009)

    One of the most important problems in statistical modeling is to choose an appropriate model from a class of candidate models. In real life, we may not know what the true model is, but we hope to find a model that is a reasonably accurate representation. A model selection criterion represents a useful tool to judge the propriety of a fitted model, by assessing whether it offers an optimal balance between goodness of fit and parsimony, the attributes of the best model. In this dissertation, the Akaike information criterion for a system of simultaneous ...

These intuitive reactions are efficient and appropriate in many situations. However, when the issue at stake concerns immediate rewards; intuitive reactions usually lead to suboptimal results. In fact, these continued reaction patterns may breed bad habits and act as endogenous constraints to one's making an optimal choice. ...

    Piyadanai Arntong; ปิยะดนัย อานทอง; Worapol Pongpech; วรพล พงษ์เพ็ชร; Worapol Pongpech; วรพล พงษ์เพ็ชร (National Institute of Development Administration, 7/1/2022)

    Natural language processing (NLP) aims to analyze a large amount of natural language data. The NLP computes textual data via a set of data processing elements which is sequentially connected to a path data pipeline. Several data pipelines exist for a given set of textual data with various degrees of model accuracy. Instead of trying all the possible paths, such as random search or grid search to find an optimal path, we utilized the Bayesian optimization to search along with the space of hyper-parameters learning. In this study, we proposed a ...
