refreshed on basic least squares from my favorite dr. brian caffo.
if we wanted to find the point where, if we were to put our finger there, right, if we were to put our finger at the point where this would balance out as if it was sort of if you were actually trying to do the physical experiment, that would be the physical center of mass of these collections of weight. and that's exactly what minimizing this least squares criteria right here gives us, the physical center of mass. from a statistical perspective, it makes a lot of sense. well why don't we define the middle as that point that is that minimizes the distance from all the points.
