Hi @kareem1925,
Thanks for your interest in the library.
Typically the github issues page isn't the best place to ask this sort of question (it's more for issues with the code/bugs, etc.), but we haven't yet set up a public forum for pennylane questions (should be coming soon).

I attach a brief toy example below for how to do linear regression in PennyLane. Hopefully it can be modified to suit your needs 😄

import pennylane as qml
from pennylane import numpy as np

x = np.linspace(-1,1,10)

m,b = 0.5, 1.2
y_data = m * x + b + 0.1 * np.random.randn(10)
def y_pred(weights):
    return weights[0] * x + weights[1]

def cost(weights):
    y_pred_ = y_pred(weights)
    mse = np.mean((y_data - y_pred_) ** 2)
    return mse

opt = qml.GradientDescentOptimizer(0.5)

init_weights = [0.0, 0.0]
weights = init_weights

for step in range(20):
    weights = opt.step(cost, weights)

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.plot(x, y_pred(weights),'r')

Hi @kareem1925, just letting you know we now have a PennyLane discussion forum:

Feel free to post your PennyLane regression questions there, and we will aim to answer as soon as possible :)
