Generalized linear models (GLMs) (McCullagh & Nelder, 1989) have become indispensable tools for analyzing agricultural, engineering and biomedical data. In this talk, we look at some (recent) extensions of GLMs, including classical nonparametric GLMs in which the mean-curve is nonparametric (e.g. Green & Silverman, 1994), semiparametric GLMs in which the error distribution is nonparametric (Huang, 2013), and doubly-nonparametric GLMs in which both the mean-curve and error distribution are nonparametric (current work). Some interesting data analysis examples and graphical tools will also be presented.
