Classification with Logistic Regression

Topic: Classification with Logistic Regression
Presenter: Kevin Wang

Kevin taught some members of MSAIL some basics of machine learning, culminating in building out a classification model for MNIST from scratch using logistic regression. Classification is the process of categorizing data into predetermined groups, and logistic regression is a means to build a classifier (though certainly not the only means to do so).

We couldn’t find the recording of this session, but be sure to check out the supplemental materials.
