# Chapter. Logistic Regression¶

## What is logistic regression?¶

Logistic regression is a statistical analysis method used to predict a data value based on prior observations of a data set. A logistic regression model predicts a dependent data variable by analyzing the relationship between one or more existing independent variables.

The dependent variable of logistics regression can be two-category or multi-category, but the two-category is more common and easier to explain. So the most common use in practice is the logistics of the two classifications. An example used by TensorFlow.NET is a hand-written digit recognition, which is a multi-category.

Softmax regression allows us to handle 1557035393445 where K is the number of classes.
