What makes Logistic Regression a Classification Algorithm?

  • Probably, for every Data Practitioner, the Linear Regression happens to be the starting point when implementing Machine Learning, where you learn about foretelling a continuous value for the given independent set of rules.
  • Let us start with the most basic one, in Binary Classification, the model should be able to predict the dependent variable as one of the two probable class which could be 0 or 1.
  • But the relation between the input variable x and output probability cannot be interpreted easily which is given by the sigmoid function, we introduce the Logit (log-odds) function now that makes this model interpretable in a linear fashion.
  • The decision boundary is defined as a threshold value that helps us to classify the predicted probability value given by sigmoid function into a particular class, positive or negative.

NexHealth's founder went from a receptionist at a clinic in the Bronx to $12 million in funding

  • There, dealing with the workflow of managing paper and electronic health records, organizing and scheduling patient’s visits and follow ups, he realized that one of the largest obstacles to quality care for many patients remains the lack of integration of medical records.
  • And why investors were willing to give the pair $12 million to build out their API providing a gateway between patient data in health records from small and medium-sized independent physicians and clinics and developers.
  • For most small clinics and independent practices, the benefits of opening up EHRs to developers isn’t entirely clear, so NexHealth is proving the use case for them with an initial suite of tools like online scheduling, automated patient communications and payments, the company said.
  • So far, the company has developed APIs to support around 50 electronic health record integrations, and is managing the caseload for around 10.4 million patients.

China Passed Security Law in Hong Kong. Goes into Effect July First

  • China has passed a national security law for Hong Kong which many worry spells the end of the territory's unique freedoms.
  • Beijing has said Hong Kong should respect and protect rights and liberties while safeguarding national security - but many still fear the loss of Hong Kong's freedoms with this law.
  • Hong Kong was handed back to China from British control in 1997, but under a unique agreement - a mini-constitution called the Basic Law and a so-called "one country, two systems" principle.
  • Under the same agreement, Hong Kong had to enact is own national security law - this was set out in Article 23 of the Basic Law - but it never happened because of its unpopularity.
  • Many might ask how China can do this if the city was supposed to have freedoms guaranteed under the handover agreement.

From the Qing Empire to the People's Republic, China's worries about separatism run deep

  • A key tenet of Xi's rule has been his pledge to restore the country to greatness, undoing the "century of humiliation" during which the Qing Empire and later the Republic of China were laid low by foreign powers, with territories including Hong Kong, Manchuria and much of Shanghai shaved off into colonies and concessions.
  • Concerns over separatism can be seen in the hardline policies adopted by Beijing in Xinjiang, Tibet and Hong Kong, as well as an increasingly aggressive stance towards the self-ruled island of Taiwan, which Xi has vowed to unify with the mainland -- by force, if necessary.
  • The nation state concept has also been expanded backwards through time, so that former imperial territories like Tibet and Xinjiang, whose traditional peoples had little connection ethnically, linguistically or culturally to those in China's east, become "part of the country since ancient times," as Liu and other Chinese officials have argued.
