# Linear Models

ICDSS Machine Learning Workshop Series: Linear Models

## Prerequisites

• Basic Linear Algebra
• Any experience with programming

## Overview

The aim of this workshop is to introduce you to Data Science and especially Linear Models. We will answer questions, such as "what is a model?" and "why linear in particular". Then, we will go through some applications, starting with a Simple Beta Hedging algorithm, usually used in Finance. Finally, we will get our hands dirty with implementing this algorithm in vanilla Python and then using off-shelf Machine Learning frameworks, such as scikit-learn and TensorFlow.

## Tasks

Complete exercise task in 'Demo.ipynb' the 'notebooks' folder. Use the 'Linear Models.ipynb' notebook for guidance

## Agenda

Linear Models

### Applications

Finance - Simple Beta Hedging

### Codelab

Vanilla Python

#### Setup

##### macOS
1. Follow Python setup environment, according to Docs repocitory.
2. Run source scripts/setup.sh command.
