This step-by-step video shows how you can easily run a symbolic regression optimization in Python using TuringBot.

This tutorial covers the following points:

- 00:11 – fit a line to your data
- 00:21 – fit a polynomial
- 00:41 – using base formulas and constants
- 00:52 – choosing input variables for each term
- 01:05 – use all variables as input except for one
- 01:23 – custom left side of equation
- 01:42 – classification problems
- 02:02 – calculating an average
- 02:13 – command line usage
- 02:38 – fine-tuning a function

In this short tutorial, we take a look at how to solve classification problems using Symbolic Regression:

When it comes to machine learning, working with normalized numbers may lead to faster convergence while training the models. Here we will show how you can normalize your dataset in Python using either NumPy or Pandas.

### NumPy

To normalize a NumPy array, you can use:

import numpy as np data = np.loadtxt('data.txt') for col in range(data.shape[1]): data[:,col] -= np.average(data[:,col]) data[:,col] /= np.std(data[:,col])

Here data.shape[1] is the number of columns in the dataset, and we are using NumPy to normalize the average and standard deviation of each column to 0 and 1 respectively.

### Pandas

Normalizing a Pandas dataframe is even easier:

import pandas as pd df = pd.read_csv('data.csv') df = (df-df.mean())/df.std()

This will normalize each column of the dataframe.

In this tutorial, we are going to show a very easy way to do symbolic regression in Python.

Read MoreSymbolic regression is a method that discovers mathematical formulas from data without assumptions on what those formulas should look like. Given a set of input variables x1, x2, x3, etc, and a target variable y, it will use trial and error find f such that y = f(x1, x2, x3, …).

Read MoreFinding mathematical formulas from data is an extremely useful machine learning task. A formula is the most compressed representation of a table, allowing large amounts of data to be compressed into something simple, while also making explicit the relationship that exists between the different variables.
