Logistic regression classifiers

Logistic regression is a technique that is used to explain the relationship between input variables and output variables. Regression can be used to make predictions on continuous values, but it can also be useful to make discrete predictions where the result is True or False, for example, or Red, Green, or Yellow as another example.

The input variables are assumed to be independent and the output variable is referred to as the dependent variable. The dependent variable can take only a fixed set of values. These values correspond to the classes of the classification problem.

Our goal is to identify the relationship between the independent variables and the dependent variables by estimating the probabilities using a logistic function. This logistic function in this case will be a sigmoid curve that's used to build the function with various parameters. Some of the reasons a sigmoid function is used in logistic regression models are:
