In the last decades, learning from data has become very important in every field of science and technology, e.g., in

• computational biology,

• medicine,

• engineering,

• financial sector,

• earth science.

Learning enables for doing estimation and prediction. Regression is mainly based on the ideas of

• least squares estimation

• maximum likelihood estimation

• and classification.

New tools for data analysis, based on nonparametric regression or smoothing:
