Gradient Descent

The special ingredient to machine learning. We learned in the last post about Linear Regression. We concluded with a cost function that we needed to minimize. Today we will see how we minimize this cost function. To recap, the cost function was : Here, h𝚯(x) is the linear regression equation that we discussed earlier( y= …

Linear Regression

Let’s look at the hello world of machine learning algorithms. In this post, we will look at a very simple machine learning algorithm which is actually the “hello world” equivalent of programming languages. So what is linear regression? If you are from a statistics background chances are you already know what it means. In statistics, …
