In the seventh lesson of the series we’ll discuss some methods for comparing linear regression models. In the process, we’ll learn about the problem of overfitting and investigate some of the pros and cons of various evaluation methods (such as R-squared, adjusted R-squared, log likelihood, AIC, and BIC). We’ll also continue to practice our Python…
To overcome SQL limitations, many companies introduced programming languages for building applications that interface with SQL databases—for example PL/SQL from Oracle. PL/SQL applications can be inefficient. But you can streamline this interface using data type collections, making PL/SQL applications faster and more efficient.
