Logistic Regression using SAS - Indepth Predictive Modeling

#artificialintelligence

What is this course all about? This course is all about credit scoring / logistic regression model building using SAS. There course promises to explain concepts in a crystal clear manner. It goes through the practical issue faced by analyst. How to clarify objective and ensure data sufficiency?


Introduction to Data Science with Python

#artificialintelligence

If you want to learn more about exploratory analysis using Pandas, check out Simplilearn's Data Science with Python video, which can help. We can see that columns like LoanAmount and ApplicantIncome contain some extreme values. We need to process this data using data wrangling techniques to normalize and standardize the data. We will now take a look at data wrangling using Pandas as a part of our learning of Data Science with Python. Data wrangling refers to the process of cleaning and unifying messy and complicated data sets.


How to Build a Machine Learning Model

How to Build a Machine Learning Model A Visual Guide to Learning Data Science Jul 25 · 13 min read Learning data science may seem intimidating but it doesn't have to be that way. Let's make learning data science fun and easy. So the challenge is how do we exactly make learning data science both fun and easy? Cartoons are fun and since "a picture is worth a thousand words", so why not make a cartoon about data science? With that goal in mind, I've set out to doodle on my iPad the elements that are required for building a machine learning model.


Deep Learning Prerequisites: Logistic Regression in Python

#artificialintelligence

Created by Lazy Programmer Inc. English [Auto-generated], Portuguese [Auto-generated], 1 more Created by Lazy Programmer Inc. This course is a lead-in to deep learning and neural networks - it covers a popular and fundamental technique used in machine learning, data science and statistics: logistic regression. We cover the theory from the ground up: derivation of the solution, and applications to real-world problems. We show you how one might code their own logistic regression module in Python. This course does not require any external materials.


Regularization: Machine Learning

#artificialintelligence

For understanding the concept of regularization and its link with Machine Learning, we first need to understand why do we need regularization. We all know Machine learning is about training a model with relevant data and using the model to predict unknown data. By the word unknown, it means the data which the model has not seen yet. We have trained the model, and are getting good scores while using training data. But during the process of prediction, we found that the model is underperforming when compared to the training part. Now, this may be a case of over-fitting(about which I will be explaining below) which is causing incorrect prediction by the model.

R squared Does Not Measure Predictive Capacity or Statistical Adequacy - KDnuggets

#artificialintelligence

The R-squared Goodness-of-Fit measure is one of the most widely available statistics accompanying the output of regression analysis in statistical software. Perhaps partially due to its widespread availability, it is also one of the most often misunderstood ones. In a regression with a single independent variable R2 is calculated as the ratio between the variation explained by the model and the total observed variation. It is often called the coefficient of determination and can be interpreted as the proportion of variation explained by the posed predictor. In such a case, it is equivalent to the square of the correlation coefficient of the observed and fitted values of the variable.


Explainable-AI: Where Supervised Learning Can Falter

#artificialintelligence

Disclaimer: I'll be talking mainly about logistic-regression and basic feed-forward neural networks, so its helpful to have programmed with those 2 models before reading this piece. OK -- before statisticians and ML folks come running after me after reading the title, I'm not talking about linear regression, for example. Yes, in linear regression, you can use the R-squared (or adjusted R-squared statistic) to talk about explained variance, and since linear regression only involves addition between independent variables (or predictors), they're pretty interpretable. But when it comes to more complex prediction models like Logistic Regression and neural networks, everything about the predictors (or called "features" in ML) becomes more confusing. And logistic-regression & neural networks fall under supervised learning, because they basically just estimate a complicated black-box function from data - labels.


Logistic Regression from scratch

#artificialintelligence

You can find working code examples (including this one) in my lab repository on GitHub. Sometimes it's necessary to split existing data into several classes in order to predict new, unseen data. This problem is called classification and one of the algorithms which can be used to learn those classes from data is called Logistic Regression. In this article we'll take a deep dive into the Logistic Regression model to learn how it differs from other regression models such as Linear- or Multiple Linear Regression, how to think about it from an intuitive perspective and how we can translate our learnings into code while implementing it from scratch. If you've read the post about Linear- and Multiple Linear Regression you might remember that the main objective of our algorithm was to find a best fitting line or hyperplane respectively.


Advantages and Disadvantages of Linear Regression

#artificialintelligence

Linear regression is a simple Supervised Learning algorithm that is used to predict the value of a dependent variable(y) for a given value of the independent variable(x) by effectively modelling a linear relationship(of the form: y mx c) between the input(x) and output(y) variables using the given dataset. In this article we will be discussing the advantages and disadvantages of linear regression. Linear Regression is a very simple algorithm that can be implemented very easily to give satisfactory results.Furthermore, these models can be trained easily and efficiently even on systems with relatively low computational power when compared to other complex algorithms.Linear regression has a considerably lower time complexity when compared to some of the other machine learning algorithms.The mathematical equations of Linear regression are also fairly easy to understand and interpret.Hence Linear regression is very easy to master. Linear regression fits linearly seperable datasets almost perfectly and is often used to find the nature of the relationship between variables. Overfitting is a situation that arises when a machine learning model fits a dataset very closely and hence captures the noisy data as well.This negatively impacts the performance of model and reduces its accuracy on the test set.
