We have arrived at the concluding chapter of the book. In respect of the previous chapters, the present one is very practical in its essence, since it mostly contains lots of code and no math or other theoretical explanation. It comprises four practical examples of real-world data science problems solved using linear models. The ultimate goal is to demonstrate how to approach such problems and how to develop the reasoning behind their resolution, so that they can be used as blueprints for similar challenges you'll encounter.

For each problem, we will describe the question to be answered, provide a short description of the dataset, and decide the metric we strive to maximize (or the error ...
