I'm a beginner, and I'm wondering whether a logistic regression in a nut-shell is just normalizing a linear regression? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I came to this conclusion because the predicted value of logistic regression is simply just the linear regression's prediction put into a sigmoid to get 0 and 1. So, logistic regression = normalized linear regression?

    $\begingroup$ Hi, do you mean normalized like in transformed? (I mean, normalization returns values in the whole real number spectrum) $\endgroup$ Commented Oct 27, 2023 at 17:50

Yes, you are right. Both are unified under the term Generalized Linear Model.
