Regression is a fundamental problem in statistics and machine learning. In regression studies, we are typically interested in inferring a real-valued function (called a regression function) whose values correspond to the mean of a dependent (or response or output) variable conditioned on one or more independent (or input) variables. Many different techniques for estimating this regression function have been developed, including parametric, semi-parametric, and nonparametric methods.
