Linear Regression Friday 16 November 10:00-18:00
Linear Regression is one of the most well known and well understood algorithms in statistics and machine learning. It has been around for almost 200 years. It is an attractive model because the representation is so simple.
During this session we first look at its history, its application in correlating events, as well as how this classifier can be used in Python. Next, we will use this technique as a recipe for potential literary creation - that can be physical, computational or (...) constantvzw.org/site/Linear-Re

SuPi8 From 22 November 2018 to 13 January 2019

The idea is to develop a small, inexpensive amateur camera that is easy to adapt and uses little energy because it will not have a monitor. Instead, we use the (...) constantvzw.org/site/SuPi8.htm
