README
Ruby Linear Regression
An implementation of a linear regression machine learning algorithm implemented in Ruby.
Features:
 Supports simple problems with one independent variable to predict a dependent variable and multivariate problems with multiple independent variables to predict a dependent variable.
 Supports training using the normal equation
 Supports training using gradient descent
 The library is implemented in pure ruby using Ruby's Matrix implementation.
Installation
gem install ruby_linear_regression
Example of usage  Train model using normal equation
require 'matrix'
require 'csv'
require 'ruby_linear_regression'
x_data = []
y_data = []
# Load data from CSV file into two arrays  one for independent variables X (x_data) and one for the dependent variable y (y_data)
CSV.foreach("statenislandsinglefamilyhomesales2015.csv", :headers => true) do row
# Each row contains square feet for property and living area like this: [ SQ FEET PROPERTY, SQ FEET HOUSE ]
x_data.push( [row[0].to_i, row[1].to_i] )
y_data.push( row[2].to_i )
end
# Create regression model
linear_regression = RubyLinearRegression.new
# Load training data
linear_regression.load_training_data(x_data, y_data)
# Train the model using the normal equation
linear_regression.train_normal_equation
# Output the cost
puts "Trained model with the following cost fit #{linear_regression.compute_cost}"
# Predict the price of a 2000 sq feet property with a 1500 sq feet house
prediction_data = [2000, 1500]
predicted_price = linear_regression.predict(prediction_data)
puts "Predicted selling price for a 1500 sq feet house on a 2000 sq feet property: #{predicted_price.round}$"
More details about this example implementation can be found in this blog post.
