Linear Regression in Python: The matrix representation of the linear regression problem

Learn about some of the math behind linear regression models.

Tue June 8, 2021 at 3:00 PM UTC

Event Information

In this session, we’ll dig into some of the math behind multiple linear regression. While there are a number of Python modules that allow us to fit a model without understanding this math, it is difficult to troubleshoot, interpret, and learn new technologies without it. This session will give you enough understanding to accomplish these things, while still bypassing detailed algebra and calculus!
