  1. Demystifying Logistic Regression

    For our hackathon this week, I, along with several co-workers, decided to re-implement Vowpal Wabbit (aka "VW") in Go as a chance to learn more about how logistic regression, a common machine learning approach, works, and to gain some practical programming experience with Go.

    Though our hackathon project focused on learning Go, in this post I want to spotlight logistic regression, which is far simpler in practice than I had previously thought. I'll use a very simple (perhaps simplistic?) implementation in pure Python to explain how to train and use a logistic regression model.
