Course Overview

Ridge and lasso regressions are machine learning algorithms with an integrated regularization functionality. Built upon the essentials of linear regression with an additional penalty term, they serve as a calibrating tool for preventing overfitting. In this hands-on course, you will learn how to apply ridge and lasso regression in Python and determine which of the two is the best choice for your particular dataset.

I learned a lot about Ridge and Lasso in this course. The instructor was very knowledgeable and explained the material very clearly. Thanks.
Good one on Linear,Ridge,Losso regression. Highly recommended. well explained. Thanks to the creator
I highly recommend this course to my friends . Its very comprensive and easy . thank you so much
Would have liked to explore more the interpretation of coefficients and other statistics
Superb learning with real-world examples useful for my immediate project!
