Deep Learning Prerequisites: Linear Regression in Python

Lazy Programmer

The Lazy Programmer is a data scientist, big data engineer, and full stack software engineer. For his master's thesis he worked on brain-computer interfaces using machine learning. These assist non-verbal and non-mobile persons to communicate with their family and caregivers.

He has worked in online advertising and digital media as both a data scientist and big data engineer, and built various high-throughput web services around said data. He has created new big data pipelines using Hadoop/Pig/MapReduce, and created machine learning models to predict click-through rate, news feed recommender systems using linear regression, Bayesian Bandits, and collaborative filtering and validated the results using A/B testing.

He has taught undergraduate and graduate students in data science, statistics, machine learning, algorithms, calculus, computer graphics, and physics for students attending universities such as Columbia University, NYU, Humber College, and The New School.

Multiple businesses have benefitted from his web programming expertise. He does all the backend (server), frontend (HTML/JS/CSS), and operations/deployment work. Some of the technologies he has used are: Python, Ruby/Rails, PHP, Bootstrap, jQuery (Javascript), Backbone, and Angular. For storage/databases he has used MySQL, Postgres, Redis, MongoDB, and more.


Deep Learning is a set of powerful algorithms that are the force behind self-driving cars, image searching, voice recognition, and many, many more applications we consider decidedly "futuristic." One of the central foundations of deep learning is linear regression; using probability theory to gain deeper insight into the "line of best fit." This is the first step to building machines that, in effect, act like neurons in a neural network as they learn while they're fed more information. In this course, you'll start with the basics of building a linear regression module in Python, and progress into practical machine learning issues that will provide the foundations for an exploration of Deep Learning.

  • Access 20 lectures & 2 hours of content 24/7
  • Use a 1-D linear regression to prove Moore's Law
  • Learn how to create a machine learning model that can learn from multiple inputs
  • Apply multi-dimensional linear regression to predict a patient's systolic blood pressure given their age & weight
  • Discuss generalization, overfitting, train-test splits, & other issues that may arise while performing data analysis
