Machine Learning for Regression
Machine Learning for Regression
Created with R2021a. Compatible with R2021a and later releases.
This curriculum module contains interactive MATLAB® live scripts that teach the basics of machine learning for regression.
You can use these live scripts as demonstrations in lectures, class activities, or interactive assignments outside class. This module covers the difference between regression, classification, and clustering, as well as feature engineering and feature extraction, overfitting and underfitting, and a variety of machine learning models commonly used for regression. It also includes a detailed example of applying regression models for electricity load forecasting using real-world data.
The instructions inside the live scripts will guide you through the exercises and activities. Get started with each live script by running it one section at a time. To stop running the script or a section midway (for example, when an animation is in progress), use the Stop button in the RUN section of the Live Editor tab in the MATLAB Toolstrip.
Solutions are available upon instructor request. Contact the MathWorks teaching resources team if you would like to request solutions, provide feedback, or if you have a question.
This module does not assume any prior exposure to the subject of machine learning.
Accessing the Module
On MATLAB Online:
Use the link to download the module. You will be prompted to log in or create a MathWorks account. The project will be loaded, and you will see an app with several navigation options to get you started.
Download or clone this repository. Open MATLAB, navigate to the folder containing these scripts and double-click on MLforRegression.prj. It will add the appropriate files to your MATLAB path and open an app that asks you where you would like to start.
Ensure you have all the required products (listed below) installed. If you need to include a product, add it using the Add-On Explorer. To install an add-on, go to the Home tab and select Add-Ons > Get Add-Ons.
MATLAB® is used throughout. Tools from Statistics and Machine Learning Toolbox™ are used frequently as well.
If you are viewing this in a version of MATLAB prior to R2023b, you can view the learning outcomes for each script here
In these scripts, students will...
- Expand on the practical problem presented in LoadForecastRegression.mlx
- Define feature engineering/extraction
- Identify and use different machine learning models commonly used for regression
- Be able to explain overfitting and underfitting
