Hi, I was wondering what is the difference between input and target? I dont get the target usage.

Let’s understand with a Simple Example…

Suppose you want to predict that whether your friend will give you Chocolate on Chocolate Day…
So you need some kind of inputs to predict that… for example…

  1. How close is your friendship
  2. How much time do you spend with him in recent days
  3. How much time does he spend with other peoples
  4. And many more

Now these inputs would determine the Yes/No which is the target

Now let’s take a much general Example…
Suppose you want to predict y which depends upon x1, x2, x3 … xn
So, x1, x2, x3 … xn are your inputs and y is your target…

Hope you understand…
