## What is K fold cross validation technique?

In k-fold cross-validation, the original sample is randomly partitioned into k equal sized subsamples. Of the k subsamples, a single subsample is retained as the validation data for testing the model, and the remaining k 1 subsamples are used as training data.

## What does a larger value of k in the k fold cross validation imply?

Larger K means less bias towards overestimating the true expected error (as training folds will be closer to the total dataset) but higher variance and higher running time (as you are getting closer to the limit case: Leave-One-Out CV).

## How do I stop Overfitting and Underfitting?

How to Prevent Overfitting or UnderfittingCross-validation: Train with more data. Data augmentation. Reduce Complexity or Data Simplification. Ensembling. Early Stopping. You need to add regularization in case of Linear and SVM models.In decision tree models you can reduce the maximum depth.

## What is Overfitting and Underfitting with example?

Overfitting: Good performance on the training data, poor generliazation to other data. Underfitting: Poor performance on the training data and poor generalization to other data.

## How can Overfitting be avoided?

The simplest way to avoid over-fitting is to make sure that the number of independent parameters in your fit is much smaller than the number of data points you have. The basic idea is that if the number of data points is ten times the number of parameters, overfitting is not possible.

## What causes model Overfitting?

Overfitting a model is a condition where a statistical model begins to describe the random error in the data rather than the relationships between variables. This problem occurs when the model is too complex. Thus, overfitting a regression model reduces its generalizability outside the original dataset.

## What is bias in machine learning?

Data bias in machine learning is a type of error in which certain elements of a dataset are more heavily weighted and/or represented than others. A biased dataset does not accurately represent a model’s use case, resulting in skewed outcomes, low accuracy levels, and analytical errors.

## What are the 5 types of bias?

We have set out the 5 most common types of bias:Confirmation bias. Occurs when the person performing the data analysis wants to prove a predetermined assumption. Selection bias. This occurs when data is selected subjectively. Outliers. An outlier is an extreme data value. Overfitting en underfitting. Confounding variabelen.

## What exactly is bias?

Bias is a disproportionate weight in favor of or against an idea or thing, usually in a way that is closed-minded, prejudicial, or unfair. Biases can be innate or learned. People may develop biases for or against an individual, a group, or a belief. In science and engineering, a bias is a systematic error.
