Theoretical Machine Learning From Scratch – Linear Models
Learn the theory and math behind Linear and Logistic regression and also learn to code them from scratch
This course will be your guide to learning how to use the power of theory, math and python to create linear regression and logistic regression, two of most popular and useful machine learning models from scratch.
This course is designed for folks with some programming experience or experienced developers looking to make the jump to data science and machine learning, I’ll teach you how to dive deep into the math behind the linear models in an easy and understandable way. Once, you have understood the inner workings of the linear models and uncovered the black box, you are ready to code everything from the ground up without using any fancy ready made machine learning libraries and yes you will be taught that too! The course is beneficial for understanding the machine learning concepts deeply rather than just using some library to get results, it will guide you in the right direction for learning many other machine learning and deep learning algorithms, as this course covers all the basics required, you will be well on your way to becoming an expert Data Scientist!
Since this course goes deep into the math and has coding from scratch, a basic to intermediate knowledge of coding is a must, also good idea of derivatives(calculus), linear algebra(matrix multiplication) and basic probability is required to get the full out of this course.
