Coding gradient descent

If you come across a problem involving linear regression or logisitic perhaps, and you wish to optimise the parameters w,b via gradient descent, would you have to hard code the process for gradient descent or are there modules which automatically do these for you?

I understand that in this course by introducing hard coded version of linear regression and gradient descent it will help with understanding these processes.

Hello @JOteng15,

In practice, we can use Tensorflow and we don’t need to write the gradient descent code ourselves. :wink:


Okay, many thanks for the quick reply!
