Linear regression is one of the simplest machine learning techniques you can use. It is often useful as a baseline relative to more powerful techniques. Like all regressions, we wish to map some input X to some input Y. You may recall from your high school studies that this is just the equation for a straight line. When X is 1-D, or when "Y has one explanatory variable", we call this "simple linear regression".
