## Study Notes

### Regression Analysis

- Aims to solve a Machine Learning problem by approximating a real-valued function 𝑓 𝑥 ∈ ℝ (i.e., predicting a continuous output)
- Examples of regression tasks: house prices prediction, weather forecasting, stocks market prediction, spread of viral disease, estimating salaries

### Simple Linear Regression Model

- Only one independent variable, X
- Relationship between X and Y is described by a linear function 𝒇(𝒙) = 𝒚
- Changes in Y are assumed to be related to changes in X
- Equation: Yi = β0 + β1Xi + ε i
- Intercept = β0, Slope = β1

### Predication Line in Regression Equation

- Estimated regression line provides an estimate of the population regression line
- b0 is the estimated mean value of Y when the value of X is zero
- b1 is the estimated change in the mean value of Y as a result of a one-unit increase in X

### The Least Square Method

- b0 and b1 are obtained by finding the values that minimize the sum of the squared differences between 𝑌 (real value) and 𝑌 (estimated value)

### Finding Best Weights/Coefficients

- Goal is to find the best coefficients to predicate the actual value
- Optimization algorithm is applied to find the best values of these coefficients by finding the local minima of estimated errors
- Example of optimization algorithm: Gradient Descent (GD)

### Regression Models: Other Types

- Multiple Linear Regression: estimates the relationship between a quantitative dependent variable and two or more independent variables
- Logistic Regression: used to predict dependent variable (as categorical or class) using a given set of independent feature

### Multiple Linear Regression

- Hypothesis function of linear regression: 𝑓(𝑥) = 𝑤0 + 𝑤1 𝑎1 𝑥 + 𝑤2 𝑎2 𝑥 + ⋯ + 𝑤𝑛 𝑎𝑛 𝑥

### Locally Weighted Regression

- Modify the error criterion E to emphasize fitting the local training examples
- Minimize the squared error over just the k nearest neighbors
- Combine 1 and 2 for a good approximation

### Logistic Regression

- Used to predict dependent variable (as categorical or class) using a given set of independent feature
- Equation: 𝒉𝜽 = 𝝈(𝜽𝑻 𝒙)
- Model: 𝝈 𝒛 = 1+𝑒 −𝒛

### Optimizing Logistic Regression

- Use Maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) method for estimation of accuracy (finding best parameters/weights for the logistic regression model)
