Linear Models

There are a large number of ML models available. Amazon ML learns one type of ML model: linear models. The term linear model implies that the model is specified as a linear combination of features. Based on training data, the learning process computes one weight for each feature to form a model that can predict or estimate the target value. For example, if your target is the amount of insurance a customer will purchase and your variables are age and income, a simple linear model would be the following:
