Blogging the Stanford Machine Learning Class

It occurred to me halfway through this weeks machine learning lectures that I could actually use the stuff were learning for something other than the homework assignments. This is known as your training setthe information youll feed to your algorithm so that it can slowly adjust its many partsthat is, learn the quirks of the housing market.
