Re: Is a test set needed after cross validation?
When N is large, the variance of the individual errs would be large, as you mention. The variance of E_loocv, however, could be knocked down by N, making E_loocv possibly robust enough.
The usual issue when N is large is computationcomputing E_loocv can be time consuming with large N.
Hope this helps.
