Machine Learning – Week 1

I began my Machine Learning course this week, as the Coursera program kicked off. Below were some of the areas studies.

  • An introduction to the field of Machine Learning.
  • A refresher crash course on Linear Algebra.
  • The problem of fitting an equation/curve to a data set with one variable. For instance, the task of predicting housing prices based on the size of the house.
  • Formalizing the above problem, with an introduction to Linear Regression.
