Why you should NEVER run a Logistic Regression (unless you have to)

Hello fellow Data Science-Centralists!

I wrote a post on my LinkedIn about why you should NEVER run a Logistic Regression. (Unless you really have to).

The main thrust is:

  • There is no theoretical reason why a least squares estimator can't work on a 0/1.
  • There are very very narrow theoretical reasons that you want to run a logistic, and unless you fall into those categories it's not worth the time.
  • The run time of a logistic can be up to…

Cross-validation and hyperparameter tuning


Almost every machine learning algorithm comes with a large number of settings that we, the machine learning researchers and practitioners, need to specify. These tuning knobs, the so-called hyperparameters, help us control the behavior of machine learning algorithms when optimizing for performance, finding the right balance between bias and variance. Hyperparameter tuning for performance optimization is an art in itself,…

Real Estate: How it is Impacted by Business Intelligence

Data is the new oil that has been thrown around long enough to render it a cliché by this point. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that data is among the most precious commodities globally and is likely to remain so for a very long time. It is merely because of the information it stands to provide to anyone that cares to use it. This holds for the real estate sector as well. How? Well, much like any other industry, this one too is a goldmine of data. Now that question is about…
