Coursera: Machine Learning (Week 3) [Assignment Solution] - Andrew NG

▸ Logistic regression and apply it to two different datasets.

I have recently completed the Machine Learning course from Coursera by Andrew NG.

While doing the course we have to go through various quiz and assignments.

Here, I am sharing my solutions for the weekly assignments throughout the course.

These solutions are for reference only.

It is recommended that you should solve the assignments by yourself honestly then only it makes sense to complete the course.
But, In case you stuck in between, feel free to refer the solutions provided by me.

NOTE:

Don't just copy paste the code for the sake of completion. 
Even if you copy the code, make sure you understand the code first.

Click here to check out week-2 assignment solutions, Scroll down for the solutions for week-3 assignment.

In this exercise, you will implement logistic regression and apply it to two different datasets. Before starting on the programming exercise, we strongly recommend watching the video lectures and completing the review questions for the associated topics.

It consist of the following files:
  • ex2.m - Octave/MATLAB script that steps you through the exercise
  • ex2 reg.m - Octave/MATLAB script for the later parts of the exercise
  • ex2data1.txt - Training set for the first half of the exercise
  • ex2data2.txt - Training set for the second half of the exercise
  • submit.m - Submission script that sends your solutions to our servers
  • mapFeature.m - Function to generate polynomial features
  • plotDecisionBoundary.m - Function to plot classifier's decision boundary
  • [*] plotData.m - Function to plot 2D classification data
  • [*] sigmoid.m - Sigmoid Function
  • [*] costFunction.m - Logistic Regression Cost Function

* indicates files you will need to complete





plotData.m :

function plotData(X, y)
  %PLOTDATA Plots the data points X and y into a new figure 
  %   PLOTDATA(x,y) plots the data points with + for the positive examples
  %   and o for the negative examples. X is assumed to be a Mx2 matrix.
  
  % ====================== YOUR CODE HERE ======================
  % Instructions: Plot the positive and negative examples on a
  %               2D plot, using the option 'k+' for the positive
  %               examples and 'ko' for the negative examples.
  %
  
  %Seperating positive and negative results
  pos = find(y==1); %index of positive results

  % Create New Figure
  figure;
  
  %Plotting Positive Results on 
  %    X_axis: Exam1 Score =  X(pos,1)
  %    Y_axis: Exam2 Score =  X(pos,2)
  plot(X(pos,1),X(pos,2),'g+');
  
  %To keep above plotted graph as it is.
  hold on;  
  
  %Plotting Negative Results on 
  %    X_axis: Exam1 Score =  X(neg,1)
  %    Y_axis: Exam2 Score =  X(neg,2)
  plot(X(neg,1),X(neg,2),'ro');
  
  % =========================================================================
  
  hold off;
end

sigmoid.m :

function g = sigmoid(z)
  %SIGMOID Compute sigmoid function
  %   g = SIGMOID(z) computes the sigmoid of z.
  
  % You need to return the following variables correctly 
  g = zeros(size(z));
  
  % ====================== YOUR CODE HERE ======================
  % Instructions: Compute the sigmoid of each value of z (z can be a matrix,
  %               vector or scalar).
  g = 1./(1+exp(-z));
  
  % =============================================================
end





costFunction.m :

function [J, grad] = costFunction(theta, X, y)
  %COSTFUNCTION Compute cost and gradient for logistic regression
  %   J = COSTFUNCTION(theta, X, y) computes the cost of using theta as the
  %   parameter for logistic regression and the gradient of the cost
  %   w.r.t. to the parameters.
  
  % Initialize some useful values
  m = length(y); % number of training examples
  
  % You need to return the following variables correctly 
  J = 0;
  grad = zeros(size(theta));
  
  % ====================== YOUR CODE HERE ======================
  % Instructions: Compute the cost of a particular choice of theta.
  %               You should set J to the cost.
  %               Compute the partial derivatives and set grad to the partial
  %               derivatives of the cost w.r.t. each parameter in theta
  %
  % Note: grad should have the same dimensions as theta
  %
  %DIMENSIONS: 
  %   theta = (n+1) x 1
  %   X     = m x (n+1)
  %   y     = m x 1
  %   grad  = (n+1) x 1
  %   J     = Scalar
  
  z = X * theta;      % m x 1
  h_x = sigmoid(z);   % m x 1 
  
  J = (1/m)*sum((-y.*log(h_x))-((1-y).*log(1-h_x))); % scalar
  
  grad = (1/m)* (X'*(h_x-y));     % (n+1) x 1

predict.m :

function p = predict(theta, X)
  %PREDICT Predict whether the label is 0 or 1 using learned logistic 
  %regression parameters theta
  %   p = PREDICT(theta, X) computes the predictions for X using a 
  %   threshold at 0.5 (i.e., if sigmoid(theta'*x) >= 0.5, predict 1)
  
  m = size(X, 1); % Number of training examples
  
  % You need to return the following variables correctly
  p = zeros(m, 1);
  
  % ====================== YOUR CODE HERE ======================
  % Instructions: Complete the following code to make predictions using
  %               your learned logistic regression parameters. 
  %               You should set p to a vector of 0's and 1's

  %   grad  = (n+1) x 1
  %   J     = Scalar
  
  z = X * theta;      % m x 1
  h_x = sigmoid(z);  % m x 1 
  
  reg_term = (lambda/(2*m)) * sum(theta(2:end).^2);
  
  J = (1/m)*sum((-y.*log(h_x))-((1-y).*log(1-h_x))) + reg_term; % scalar
  
  grad(1) = (1/m)* (X(:,1)'*(h_x-y));                                  % 1 x 1
  grad(2:end) = (1/m)* (X(:,2:end)'*(h_x-y))+(lambda/m)*theta(2:end);  % n x 1
  
  % =============================================================
end

I tried to provide optimized solutions like vectorized implementation for each assignment. If you think that more optimization can be done, then put suggest the corrections / improvements.
