In different research fields we observe an increasing number of really imposing data sets; imposing in size, for the huge number of measurements provided by technology advances; in dimensions for the very large number of variables that the investigators wish to consider in the research; and in complexity, for the high level of connectivity among attributes in the data space.This research addresses the problem of the analysis of these data sets with models able to describe the system under study and make good and accurate predictions.In the scientific literature there are several approaches proposed to deal with modelling large and high dimensional data sets, mostly in the field of penalized regression models.Specific objective of the present research will be to derive a new approach based on models able to discover target values (ex. optimum values) in huge spaces using a very small set of data
