This workshop will cover these topics:

  1. What is feature importance?
  2. Models that calculate feature importance
  3. Recursive Feature Elimination without cross-validation
  4. Recursive Feature Elimination with cross-validation

This workshop will be given remotely and streaming using LiveWebinar platform, which works on every updated internet browser. No installation is then required.

The duration is about 60 minutes.

The speaker will show some slides for the theoretical part of the content and will write code during the event using Google Colaboratory for the practical part.
