Seeing the Random Forest behind the Trees
This article is part of a BAI series exploring 10 basic machine learning algorithms
How can you predict for which machine learning algorithm I’m looking? In the parlor game of twenty questions the goal is to find the answer by asking the minimum number of categorical yes/no questions. Which question should you ask first, and on what criteria? Which question should be asked next? What is the minimum number of questions needed to insure the correct prediction? Keep this game in mind as we explore how the Random Forest algorithm is used in machine learning, its basic assumptions and use scenarios, as well as what precautions we should take when relying on this methodology...
