# Application of Bayesian Regression

Learn about the applications of Bayesian regression in software engineering.

## We'll cover the following

Bayesian regression is a powerful machine learning technique that combines prior knowledge and observed data to make predictions. This approach allows for incorporating prior beliefs about the model parameters, leading to more robust results than traditional frequentist regression. In software engineering, Bayesian regression can be used for various tasks, including software performance prediction, bug density prediction, and effort estimation.

## Software defect prediction

One of the main applications of Bayesian regression in software engineering is software defect prediction. This application aims to predict the number of software defects present in a given system based on specific software characteristics, such as the size of the system, the number of developers involved in the project, and the number of lines of code.
