Also to know is, how does lasso work?
LASSO, is actually an acronym for Least Absolute Selection and Shrinkage Operator. The LASSO imposes a constraint on the sum of the absolute values of the model parameters, where the sum has a specified constant as an upper bound. This constraint causes regression coefficients for some variables to shrink towards zero.
Subsequently, question is, what is the difference between Ridge and lasso regression? The only difference from Ridge regression is that the regularization term is in absolute value. Lasso method overcomes the disadvantage of Ridge regression by not only punishing high values of the coefficients β but actually setting them to zero if they are not relevant.
what is lasso used for?
In statistics and machine learning, lasso (least absolute shrinkage and selection operator; also Lasso or LASSO) is a regression analysis method that performs both variable selection and regularization in order to enhance the prediction accuracy and interpretability of the statistical model it produces.
What is Lasso and Ridge?
Ridge and Lasso regression are powerful techniques generally used for creating parsimonious models in presence of a 'large' number of features. Here 'large' can typically mean either of two things: Large enough to enhance the tendency of a model to overfit (as low as 10 variables might cause overfitting)
