What Data Is Good For Linear Regression - Intro to Machine Learning

  • 0:00 - 0:03
    Another reason that visualizing can be very helpful is there's
  • 0:03 - 0:07
    some data that just isn't going to be very good.
  • 0:07 - 0:10
    There's just going to be some data that's going to be difficult to fit
  • 0:10 - 0:11
    with a regression.
  • 0:11 - 0:13
    Let me show you what I mean with a quiz.
  • 0:13 - 0:16
    Here are a few different data sets I might have.
  • 0:16 - 0:20
    And I'm making a scatter plot of some features of each one.
  • 0:20 - 0:24
    And my question for you is, which of these data sets would you look at it and
  • 0:24 - 0:28
    say, that looks like a good candidate for linear regression?
  • 0:28 - 0:32
    We've done a lot of examples of linear regression, and by a good candidate,
  • 0:32 - 0:37
    I mean you can write an equation y equals mx plus b
  • 0:37 - 0:40
    that does a good job of describing the patterns in the data.
  • 0:40 - 0:44
    Place a check box by all the ones that would be good candidates.
