The basic concepts of machine learning are introduced with a focus on intuition and examples. The simpler and widely used logistic regression model is introduced first, and from this, multilayered neural network are introduced as a generalization. Concepts of parameter learning (optimization), generalization (and overfitting), validation and performance evaluation are also introduced. This session is part of the Duke+DataScience (+DS) program virtual learning experiences (vLEs). To learn more, please visit https://plus.datascience.duke.edu
