Different types of Validations in Machine Learning (Cross Validation)

Now that we know what is feature selection and how to do it, let's move our focus to validating the efficiency of our model. This is known as validation or cross validation, depending on what kind of validation method you're using. But before that, let's try to understand why we need to validate our models. Validation, or Evaluation of Residuals Once you are done with fitting your model to you training data, and you've also tested it with your test data, you can't just assume that its going to work well on data that it has not seen before. In other words, you can't be sure that the model will have the desired accuracy and variance in your production environment. You need some kind of assurance of the accuracy of the predictions that your model is putting out. For this, we need to val...
