Regression Mini-Project Video - Intro to Machine Learning

  • 0:00 - 0:03
    Welcome to the mini-project on regressions.
  • 0:03 - 0:06
    If you worked at Enron in 2000 or
  • 0:06 - 0:09
    2001, chances are you're getting a pretty hefty bonus.
  • 0:09 - 0:12
    How hefty? Well that's what we're going to to figure out in this lesson using
  • 0:12 - 0:13
    the power of regressions.
  • 0:13 - 0:16
    So, if you know someone's salary, if you know someone's stock options,
  • 0:16 - 0:18
    et cetera, et cetera,
  • 0:18 - 0:22
    are you able to predict how much money they're making in their bonus every year.
  • 0:22 - 0:25
    And the answer is, well, maybe, but you have to use a regression to find out.
  • 0:25 - 0:27
    So that's what we'll be doing.
  • 0:27 - 0:30
    In the second part of the mini project, we're going to get a sneak peek at
  • 0:30 - 0:33
    next lesson's material, which is about outliers.
  • 0:33 - 0:38
    Outliers are data points that fall far outside the pattern as a large, and
  • 0:38 - 0:42
    you'll get an idea of, of how those actually affect the result that you get
  • 0:42 - 0:43
    on something like your regression.
  • 0:43 - 0:45
    It can be bigger than you might think.
