Introduction

Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being


explicitly programmed

It is a branch of artificial intelligence based on the idea that machines should be


able to learn and adapt through experience

Machines learn from previous computations to produce reliable, repeatable


decisions and results

Linear Regression

Linear regression is a method for predicting the value of a dependent variable Y,


based on the value of an independent variable X
Y = 0 + 1X

Coefficient of Determination(denoted by R2)


It is a key output of regression analysis
Interpreted as the proportion of the variance in the dependent variable that is
predictable from the independent variable
Ranges from 0 to 1
An Example
