Are the concepts of normalizing and scaling of data in conflict with each other?
I am adding weights to my features, I have tried normalizing the weights and it didn't make any difference in the outcome. I have also scaled my input data. and got positive results.
however, I have heard from other sources, fellow students- not so reliable, that I should scale the weights.
So I am rather stumped, I don't know if it is something really simple and I am having a mental block or it it is something more complex that I am not understanding.
