What type of models use gradient descent?

I am curious, I have been researching a lot about gradient descent and I noticed that it only works for linear regression and logistic regression. Are there any other models that use gradient descent that would find the most optimal cost to fit the training data? Like for example, can a decision tree or random forest model use gradient descent?

Yes, gradient descent works for many other algorithms too, besides linear and logistic regression. You will learn more about it in MLS course 2.


Are you talking about ‘Advanced Learning Algorithms’ or in week 2 of ‘Supervised ML: Regression and Classification’?

Advanced Learning Algorithms…

I appreciate your help!
