XLSTAT version 2020.4



XLSTAT 2020.4 is now available! What’s new? 

Support Vector Machine (SVM) has been generalized and can be applied to regression problems in addition to classification ones. This method is commonly used in time series prediction. Our revamped interface now allows you to choose the best suited response variable type for your analysis (binary/multi-class classification or regression). 

Access this feature under the Machine Learning menu. 

A new clustering method for multiblock datasets, commonly used in sensory and consumer studies (e.g. projective mapping) has been added. Use this feature, to perform a cluster analysis of consumers or judges on the basis of their perceptions of products. This new feature is particularly useful when your data includes atypical configurations. 

Access this new feature under the Sensory Data Analysis menu. 

Our revamped interface will allow you to easily generate an experiment design. It is now possible to select the data in a single tab instead of several ones. A new table has been added to the report sheet allowing you to define the optimization settings of the analysis or use the default software ones. 

Access this feature under the DOE menu. 

Users can now either manually define the number of neighbors or use the K-fold cross validation option to identify the optimal number of neighbors from a range of values. The model with the minimum cross-validation errors will apply. A summary table for each tested K, and the related chart will be displayed.

Access this feature under the Machine Learning menu. 

A Prediction tab has been added in the dialog box to allow you to select the variables of the prediction sample. As a result, you no longer need to select the prediction set in the General tab. 

Access this feature under the Machine Learning menu. 

How to get XLSTAT 2020.4?

Version 2020.4 will give you access to all the above improvements, advanced options and increase the performance of your software. Installing our new version is recommended for all users.
