Upcoming events (4+)

Linear Regression Models by Shruti Patel : ML Hacknight Series (7)

This session will cover a high level overview of linear regression models and a practical guide to implementing them. We will demonstrate a high level implementation of linear regression models using the Python scikit-learn package where the model training is abstracted. We will then go on to also demonstrate what a from scratch implementation of the same would look like.

Machine Learning, a core aspect of Artificial Intelligence, has gained popularity over the past decade due to advancements in Big Data processing and cloud computing. We are seeing a tremendous growth in the application of Machine Learning across a wide spectrum of industries, be it to predict customer behaviors/needs, or to the advancement of science or to the advancement of healthcare services. As the use of Machine Learning across software applications grows, we have an ever increasing need to learn and understand the underlying algorithmic decision models not only for creating innovative solutions but also for unbiased ones.

Please join us in exploring the multiple facets of Machine Learning and take the journey together. We plan to create a course curriculum using various sources available online and create a group learning atmosphere, with occasional guest speakers.
