Description

Ever wondered how AI technologies like **OpenAI** **ChatGPT**,** GPT-4**, **DALL-E**, **Midjourney**, and **Stable Diffusion** really work? In this course, you will learn the foundations of these groundbreaking applications.

This course teaches you about one popular technique used in **machine learning**, **data science** and **statistics**: **linear regression**. We cover the theory from the ground up: derivation of the solution, and applications to real-world problems. We show you how one might code their own linear regression module in Python.

Linear regression is the simplest machine learning model you can learn, yet there is so much depth that you'll be returning to it for years to come. That's why it's a great introductory course if you're interested in taking your first steps in the fields of:

deep learning

machine learning

data science

statistics

In the first section, I will show you how to use 1-D linear regression to prove that **Moore's Law** is true.

What's that you say? Moore's Law is not linear?

You are correct! I will show you how linear regression can still be applied.

In the next section, we will extend 1-D linear regression to any-dimensional linear regression - in other words, how to create a machine learning model that can learn from multiple inputs.

We will apply multi-dimensional linear regression to predicting a patient's systolic blood pressure given their age and weight.

Finally, we will discuss some practical machine learning issues that you want to be mindful of when you perform **data analysis**, such as **generalization**, **overfitting**, **train-test splits**, and so on.

This course does not require any external materials. Everything needed (Python, and some Python libraries) can be obtained for FREE.

If you are a programmer and you want to enhance your coding abilities by learning about data science, then this course is for you. If you have a technical or mathematical background, and you want to know how to apply your skills as a software engineer or "hacker", this course may be useful.

This course focuses on "**how to build and understand**", not just "how to use". Anyone can learn to use an API in 15 minutes after reading some documentation. It's not about "remembering facts", it's about **"seeing for yourself" via experimentation**. It will teach you how to visualize what's happening in the model internally. If you want **more** than just a superficial look at machine learning models, this course is for you.

"If you can't implement it, you don't understand it"

Or as the great physicist Richard Feynman said: "What I cannot create, I do not understand".

My courses are the ONLY courses where you will learn how to implement machine learning algorithms from scratch

Other courses will teach you how to plug in your data into a library, but do you really need help with 3 lines of code?

After doing the same thing with 10 datasets, you realize you didn't learn 10 things. You learned 1 thing, and just repeated the same 3 lines of code 10 times...

Suggested Prerequisites:

calculus (taking derivatives)

matrix arithmetic

probability

Python coding: if/else, loops, lists, dicts, sets

Numpy coding: matrix and vector operations, loading a CSV file
