### Why we take $\alpha\sum B_j^2$ as penalty in Ridge Regression?

$$RSS_{RIDGE}=\sum_{i=1}^n(\hat{y_i}-y_i)^2+\alpha\sum_{i=1}^nB_j^2$$ Why we are taking $\alpha\sum B_j^2$ as a penalty here? We are adding this term for minimizing variance in Machine Learning Model. ...

### Lack of standardization in Kaggle jupyter notebooks when using lasso/ridge?

I've recently started using Kaggle, and I've noticed that for a lot of these jupyter notebooks written by others, when they use Ridge/Lasso, they don't standardize the non-categorical numerical ...

### Do the benefits of ridge regression diminish with larger datasets?

I have a question about ridge regression and about its benefits (relative to OLS) when the datasets are big. Do the benefits of ridge regression disappear when the datasets are larger (e.g. 50,000 vs ...

### What is the meaning of the sparsity parameter

Sparse methods such as LASSO contain a parameter $\lambda$ which is associated with the minimization of the $l_1$ norm. Higher the value of $\lambda$ ($>0$) means that more coefficients will be ...

### How do standardization and normalization impact the coefficients of linear models?

One benefit of creating a linear model is that you can look at the coefficients the model learns and interpret them. For example, you can see which features have the most predictive power and which do ...
