If I set the regularization parameter to 0, does it essentially mean I'm not applying regularization (I've boxed the regularization bits in red)?
Also, what is this type of regularization called?

I performed two separate regression analyses by dividing my total sample into 'Male' and 'Female' samples, that resulted into different % of variances of variables (e.g for male the percent variance ...

For ridge regression I learned before, $\hat{w} = argmin_{\theta}||y-Xw||_2^2 + \lambda||w||_2^2$.
Thinking about if the bias is added, so the new $X$ become $[1,X]$, and we have a new weight $\theta$...

In the most basic form, (as I recall), consider a random variable $X$
which is defined over a probability space $\Omega$.
Now, let us call a realization of $X$

I am dealing with a regression problem (my targets could potentially take values between -inf to +inf).
To optimise my model, I have two objectives:
1) Predictions should be close to the targets.
2)...

I stumbled on a discussion regarding the usefulness of $R^2$ as a metric. Where $R^2$ is defined as:
$$ \frac{\sum (\hat{y} - \bar{\hat{y}})^2 } {\sum(y - \bar{y})^2 }.$$
The criticism is backed by ...
