How to prove that a regularisation method simplified a neural network?

There are a few ways to regularise a neural network, for example dropout or the L1. Now, both these methods, and possibly most other regularisation methods, tend to remove from, or simplify the neural ...

Would either $L_1$ or $L_2$ regularisation lower the MSE on the training and test data?

Consider linear regression. The mean squared error (MSE) is 120.5 for the training dataset. We've reached the minimum for the training data. Is it possible that by applying Lasso (L1 regularization) ...

What is the effect of too harsh regularization?

While training a CNN model, I used an l1_l2 regularization (i.e. I applied both $L_1$ and $L_2$ regularization) on the final layers. While training, I saw the ...

When is using weight regularization bad?

Regularization of weights (e.g. L1 or L2) keeps them small and standardized, which can help reduce data overfitting. From this article, regularization sounds favorable in many cases, but is it always ...

Why does L1 regularization yield sparse features?

In contrast to L2 regularization, L1 regularization usually yields sparse feature vectors and most feature weights are zero. What's the reason for the above statement - could someone explain it ...

Does L1/L2 Regularization help reach an optimum result faster?

I understand that L1 and L2 regularization helps to prevent overfitting. My question is then, does that mean they also help a neural network learn faster as a result? The way I'm thinking is that ...

Which is a better form of regularization: lasso (L1) or ridge (L2)?

Given a ridge and a lasso regularizer, which one should be chosen for better performance? An intuitive graphical explanation (intersection of the elliptical contours of the loss function with the ...
