Best Feature Selection for Forecasting

 

In this example, we solve a linear regression problem that minimizes the residual sum of squares subject to the constraint that the number of non-zero feature weights should be less than or equal to a given upper limit. We construct a mixed-integer quadratic programming (MIQP) model of this problem, implement this model in the Gurobi Python API, and compute an optimal solution.

This modeling example is at the intermediate level, where we assume that you know Python and are familiar with the Gurobi Python API. In addition, you should have some knowledge about building mathematical optimization models.
