Implementing Linear Regression in TensorFlow

TensorFlow is a powerful library for machine learning that allows for the easy implementation of various algorithms, including linear regression. In this tutorial, we will be using TensorFlow tape gradient to implement a linear regression model and plot the loss graph and x and y on matplotlib.

First, we will start by importing the necessary libraries:

import tensorflow as tf
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

Next, we will generate some fake data for our linear regression model. We will use the tf.random.normal() function to generate random x and y values, and we will use a slope of 2 and an intercept of 1 to generate our y values.

# Generate fake data
num_samples = 1000
x = tf.random.normal([num_samples])
y = 2 * x + 1 + tf.random.normal([num_samples])

Now, we will define our model using the tf.keras.Sequential() function and add a single layer with one input and one output.

# Define model
model = tf.keras.Sequential([
    tf.keras.layers.Dense(1, input_shape=(1,))

Next, we will define our loss function and optimizer. We will use the mean squared error loss function and the Adam optimizer.

# Define loss and optimizer
loss_fn = tf.keras.losses.MeanSquaredError()
optimizer = tf.keras.optimizers.Adam()

Now, we will use the TensorFlow tape gradient method to train our model. We will loop through the data for a specified number of iterations and update the model’s weights using the optimizer.

# Train model
num_epochs = 1000
loss_values = []
for epoch in range(num_epochs):
    with tf.GradientTape() as tape:
        y_pred = model(x)
        loss = loss_fn(y, y_pred)
    grads = tape.gradient(loss, model.trainable_variables)
    optimizer.apply_gradients(zip(grads, model.trainable_variables))

Finally, we will plot the loss graph and x and y on matplotlib.

# Plot loss graph
plt.title('Loss vs. Epoch')
The graph shows the comparison between the loss and number of epochs.
# Plot x and y
plt.scatter(x, y)
plt.plot(x, model(x), 'r')
plt.title('Linear Regression Model')
The scatter graph showing the predicted points around the line.

And that’s it! We have successfully implemented a linear regression model using TensorFlow tape gradient and plotted the loss graph and x and y on matplotlib. You can experiment with different values for the number of samples, slope, and intercept to see how it affects the model’s performance. Happy coding!
