Linear regression hypothesis testing: Concepts, Examples

Simple linear regression model

In relation to machine learning, linear regression is defined as a predictive modeling technique that allows us to build a model which can help predict continuous response variables as a function of a linear combination of explanatory or predictor variables. While training linear regression models, we need to rely on hypothesis testing in relation to determining the relationship between the response and predictor variables. In the case of the linear regression model, two types of hypothesis testing are done. They are T-tests and F-tests. In other words, there are two types of statistics that are used to assess whether linear regression models exist representing response and predictor variables. They are …

Business Analytics Team Structure: Roles/ Responsibilities

business analytics value chain

Business analytics is a business function that has been around for years, but it’s only recently gained traction as one of the most important business functions. Organizations are now realizing how business analytics can help them increase revenue and improve business operations. But before you bring on a business analytics team, you need to determine if your company needs full-time or part-time team members or both. It might seem logical to hire full-time staff members just because they’re in demand, but this isn’t always necessary. If your business operates without any external data sets and doesn’t have complex reporting and advanced analytics needs then it may be more cost-effective to …

Elbow Method vs Silhouette Score – Which is Better?

In K-means clustering, elbow method and silhouette analysis or score techniques are used to find the number of clusters in a dataset. The elbow method is used to find the “elbow” point, where adding additional data samples does not change cluster membership much. Silhouette score determines whether there are large gaps between each sample and all other samples within the same cluster or across different clusters. In this post, you will learn about these two different methods to use for finding optimal number of clusters in K-means clustering. Selecting optimal number of clusters is key to applying clustering algorithm to the dataset. As a data scientist, knowing these two techniques to find …
