Supervised Machine Learning: Regression

Por: Coursera . en: , ,

  • Introduction to Supervised Machine Learning and Linear Regression
    • This module introduces a brief overview of supervised machine learning and its main applications: classification and regression. After introducing the concept of regression, you will learn its best practices, as well as how to measure error and select the regression model that best suits your data.
  • Data Splits and Cross Validation
    • There are a few best practices to avoid overfitting of your regression models. One of these best practices is splitting your data into training and test sets. Another alternative is to use cross validation. And a third alternative is to introduce polynomial features. This module walks you through the theoretical framework and a few hands-on examples of these best practices.
  • Regression with Regularization Techniques: Ridge, LASSO, and Elastic Net
    • This module walks you through the theory and a few hands-on examples of regularization regressions including ridge, LASSO, and elastic net. You will realize the main pros and cons of these techniques, as well as their differences and similarities.
