Re: No need to go to Uni....

Many developers are quite happy to run a linear regression on a data set without understanding the actual mathematics behind it.

Fine with me, and fine with the most basic models (decision trees are very easy to explain and understand). But if all they are using are linear regression models why not learn the very simple principles of it? And please don't try to pass it as AI or state-of-the-art.
