Logistic regression in Patient-level prediction package

Hello all,
I was wondering why did PLP package only use lasso logistic regression, not Ridge logistic regression?

Thank you for your attention :slight_smile:

@Borim_Ryu There is no specific reason, to my knowledge.
But the strength of lasso over ridge is that lasso can reduce the number of covariates, which is a quite lovely feature.
