Regression-based prediction is predicting the unknown value of a variable from the known value of another variable. We predict scores on one variable based on the scores of a second (or more) variable.
There are two methods of regression that are based on the outcome/target variable:
An example of regression-based prediction is Stochastic Gradient Descent (SGD).
In model-based prediction, we assume ...
