Why would you use Regularization and what it is?

Why would you use Regularization and what it is? In Machine Learning, very often the task is to fit a model to a set of training data and use the fitted model to make predictions or classify new (out of sample) data points. Sometimes model fits the training data very well but does not well in predicting out of sample … Read more
