Regression

Label for Regression Analysis

Overview

Regression models are used to predict continuous values. They provide a function that determines a relationship between an independent variable and a dependent variable, allowing you to find trends in your data.
Plainsight supports labeling images using a regression label type that supports a numerical value. In the future, an API will be available to supply data for training a regression model.

Labeling Regression Data

Once you've defined your Regression label, you can begin annotating your regression data.

Training a Regression Model

You can train a regression model by specifying Regression as the Model Output Type in your SmartML configuration. Check out our walk-through on building your regression model in Plainsight:
