    $\begingroup$ A feature cross is a synthetic feature formed by multiplying (crossing) two or more features. Crossing combinations of features can provide predictive abilities beyond what those features can provide individually.developers.google.com/machine-learning/crash-course/… $\endgroup$ – João Vitor Gomes Aug 16 at 13:16
