I am working on a paper after peer review and struggling to address one of the comments that states "empirical method without any solid theoretical background". It is a paper about machine learning algorithms applied to a specific field.
Please, any ideas or suggestions on how to address this comment?
I reviewed my methodology section and brought more formalism to the design decisions. Additionally, I am working to address all the aspects of reproducibility as the answer to question Guidelines for communication of machine learning methods in empirical research papers.
