A Toda Poderosa Floresta Aleatória

Um ótimo post sobre as potencialidades das Florestas Aleatórias (Random Forests) com o direito de um Salmo no final do post. O post ainda apresenta duas referências sobre o uso das Random Forests.

The Random Forest™ is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me watch the mean squared error decrease rapidly. He leads me beside classification problems. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of the power of ensembles for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the curse of dimensionality, I will fear no overfitting, for you are with me; your bootstrap and your randomness, they comfort me.

You prepare a prediction before me in the presence of complex interactions; you anoint me data scientist; my wallet overflows. Surely goodness of fit and money shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall use Random Forests™ forever.
