Logistic Regression tutorial + Tarantino Datadive!

Happy new year MLNE folks!

This month sees us continue our amble through the contents of Introduction to Statistical Learning, by examining Logistic Regression models and their applications.

We need 20 signups to proceed, so please make sure you sign up!

As part of continued efforts to refine the format of MLNE, the session will split into two parts: (Tutorial part) 6.30 - 7ish: We'll rattle through the mathematical ideas underpinning Logistic regression, and look at applying it to a dataset. There'll be an iPython notebook (sorry r users!) for your perusal too.

(Data hack) 7ish onwards: Try out your newly learnt skills, or just see what you can do with this amazing dataset recording the time and nature of every swear word in every Tarantino Movie! https://github.com/fivethirtyeight/data/tree/master/tarantino

As always, thanks to Campus North and their sponsors for the venue and the drinks!
