Can Wikipedia Page Activity be used to Predict Opening Weekend Box Office Revenue?

Joel Galang, a Business Analytics Specialist at PPD, will describe how he and some fellow distance learning graduate students in Texas A&M's Department of Statistics used R to create a statistical model that uses Wikipedia page activity to predict opening weekend box office data. Topics will include creating and assessing regression models in R, using the glmnet package to perform LASSO variable selection, and using the ggplot2 package for exploratory data analysis.
