Richard Willey, MathWorks

Engineers and scientists need to understand data quickly and efficiently to make decisions that can impact future research and product design. In this webinar we will outline many of the challenges faced in collecting, analyzing, and visualizing data and illustrate how MATLAB, Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox, and Curve Fitting Toolbox can help alleviate these challenges. An example real-world data analysis problem will be presented, with special focus on new surface fitting capabilities introduced in R2009a.
