The traditional Least Square estimation, KNN face severe overfitting issues when the dataset has high-dimensional features. Modern data mining regression techniques such as lasso and classification techniques such as SVM give a better estimation result in such a situation. The workshop intends to show how lasso and SVM work in Python. Compare the estimation result of Lasso with least square estimation, SVM with KNN in the high-dimensional setting.
