Course Description

Explore the features of simple and multiple regression, implement simple and multiple regression models, and explore concepts of gradient descent and regularization and different types of gradient descent and regularization. Key concepts covered in this 12-video course include characteristics of the prominent types of linear regression; essential features of simple and multiple regressions and how they are used to implement linear models; and how to implement simple regression models by using Python libraries for machine learning solutions. Next, observe how to implement multiple regression models in Python by using Scikit-learn and StatsModels; learn the different types of gradient descent; and see how to classify the prominent gradient descent optimization algorithms from the perspective of their mathematical representation. Learn how to implement a simple representation of gradient descent using Python; how to implement linear regression by using mini-batch gradient descent to compute hypothesis and predictions; and learn the benefits of regularization and the objectives of L1 and L2 regularization. Finally, learn how to implement L1 and L2 regularization of linear models by using Scikit-learn.
