Logistic Regression

This is the second in a series of posts in which I explore concepts in Andrew Ng’s Introduction to Machine Learning course on Coursera. In each, I’m implementing a machine learning algorithm in Python: first using standard Python data science and numerical libraries, and then with TensorFlow. Logistic regression is similar to linear regression, but instead of predicting a continuous output, classifies training examples by a set of categories or labels. more

This is the first of a series of posts in which I’ll be exploring concepts taught in Andrew Ng’s Introduction to Machine Learning course on Coursera. As a CS student, I enjoyed doing odd or extra things with my assignments — I found it added a greater challenge and allowed me to learn outside the scope of the class in a well-structured way. So, as I progress through this course, I’ll be posting another take on the coursework in Python, using a Jupyter notebook. more
