0. Introduction to classification

This module introduces logistic regression models to predict the value of binary variables. Unlike continuous variables, a binary variable can only take two different values and predicting its value is commonly called classification. Several important concepts regarding classification are discussed, including cross validation and confusion matrix, cost sensitive classification, and ROC curves. You will also learn how to build classification models using the software tool XLMiner.
