Linear Regression Geometry | Data Nerd's Corner | Scoop.it
The general approch is to understand the theory based on principle of "minimum" square error and we derive the solution using minimization of functions through calculus,however it has a nice geometric intuition, if we use the tricks or methods related to solving an over-determined system
Carla Gentry CSPO's insight:
Linear Regression is one of the most widely used statistical model used in many situations.If we have Y variable which in continuous i.e. can take decimal values, and is expected to have linear relation with X variables, this relation could be modeled as linear regression, mostly the first model to fit,if we are planning to develop a model of forecasting Y or trying to build hypothesis about relation Xs on Y.

“All Others Must Bring Data”

“All Others Must Bring Data” | Data Nerd's Corner | Scoop.it
“In God we trust; all others must bring data.” —W.

To produce a quality product—and continue producing a quality product—you need data. Data you can trust doesn’t simply appear; you need to collect it and then analyze it properly. . . .

» Beware Workforce Vendors Using Predictive Workforce Language But Offering Non-Predictive Solutions

» Beware Workforce Vendors Using Predictive Workforce Language But Offering Non-Predictive Solutions | Data Nerd's Corner | Scoop.it
