Model evaluation metrics are used to assess goodness of fit between model and data, to compare different models, in the context of model selection, and to predict how predictions (associated with a specific model and data set) are expected to be accurate.
Feature selection is one of the core topics in machine learning. In statistical science, it is called variable reduction or selection. Our scientist published a methodology to automate this process and efficiently handle la large number of features (called variables by statisticians). Click here for details.
Here, we mention an article published by Isabelle Guyon…Continue

Sometimes a correlation means absolutely nothing, and is purely accidental (especially when you compute millions of correlations among thousands of variables) or it can be explained by confounding factors. For instance, the fact that the cost of electricity is correlated to how much people spend on education, is explained by a confounding factor:…Continue
