This paper determines methods to develop a novel technique for predicting a nation in view of the Olympic awards owned by 2012. It is the combination of three methods are Pearson correlation coefficient, Spearman correlation coefficient and along with linear regression. The main idea of the paper is to compare the value of Spearman and Pearson correlation coefficient as there in the same set of data. The example concerns the comparison of the total medals and the GDP (gross domestic product) that has been obtained by each country. The results from using these methods do the heuristics prediction of Olympic medals using machine learning. © 2017 IEEE.
