Deep Learning is a set of powerful algorithms that are the force behind self-driving cars, image searching, voice recognition, and many, many more applications we consider decidedly "futuristic." One of the central foundations of deep learning is linear regression; using probability theory to gain deeper insight into the "line of best fit." This is the first step to building machines that, in effect, act like neurons in a neural network as they *learn* while they're fed more information. In this course, you'll start with the basics of building a linear regression module in Python, and progress into practical machine learning issues that will provide the foundations for an exploration of Deep Learning.

Logistic regression is one of the most fundamental techniques used in machine learning, data science, and statistics, as it may be used to create a classification or labeling algorithm that quite resembles a biological neuron. Logistic regression units, by extension, are the basic bricks in the neural network, the central architecture in deep learning. In this course, you'll come to terms with logistic regression using practical, real-world examples to fully appreciate the vast applications of Deep Learning.
