### Can Catboost Regressor be leveraged for ordinal regression?

Customer satisfaction is generally an ordinal variable on a scale of 1 - 5, where 5 is the best score. Ordinal regression is used to regress such variables. Can Catboost Regressor, handle such a ...

### Fitting 2D mapping data from multiple measurements

Given a set of points in a plane, and series of measurements of the distances between those points, how would I go about generating a best-fit model of the position of the points? For example, given ...

### How do I correctly multiply vectors and matrices in Python and MATLAB?

I have been trying for 2-3 days now to get L2 regularized logistric regression to work in Matlab (CVX) and Python(CVXPY) but no success. I am fairly new to convex optimization so I am quite frustrated....
