In supervised learning, the dataset is usually split into three non-equal parts: training, validation, and test:

  • The training set on which you train your model. It has to be big enough to give the model as much information on the data as possible. This subset of the data is used by the algorithm to estimate the best parameters of the model. In our case, the SGD algorithm will use that training subset to find the optimal weights of the linear regression model.
  • The validation set is used to assess the performance of a trained model. ...
