What Is Mean Square Error (MSE)?

Mean Square Error (MSE)

Mean Square Error (MSE) a regressive loss measure. The MSE is measured as the difference between the model’s predictions and ground truth, squared and averaged out across the dataset. It is used to check how close the predicted values are to the actual values. As in RMSE, a lower value indicates a better fit, and it heavily penalizes large errors or outliers.
