Plotting trees from Random Forest models with ggraph

Today, I want to show how I use Thomas Lin Pederson’s awesome ggraph package to plot decision trees from Random Forest models. I am very much a visual person, so I try to plot as much of my results as possible because it helps me get a better feel f...

ABC random forests for Bayesian parameter inference

Before leaving Helsinki, we arXived the paper Jean-Michel presented on Monday at ABCruise in Helsinki. This paper summarises the experiments Louis conducted over the past months to assess the great performances of a random forest regression approach to ABC parameter inference. Thus validating in this experimental sense the use of

Confidence Intervals for Random Forests

by Joseph Rickert Random Forests, the "go to" classifier for many data scientists, is a fairly complex algorithm with many moving parts that introduces randomness at different levels. Understanding exactly how the algorithm operates requires some work, and assessing how good a Random Forests model fits the data is a serious challenge. In the pragmatic world of machine learning...

Predicting wine quality using Random Forests

Hello everyone! In this article I will show you how to run the random forest algorithm in R. We will use the wine quality data set (white) from the UCI Machine Learning Repository. What is the Random Forest Algorithm? In a previous post, I outlined how to build decision trees in R. While decision trees

ABC model choice via random forests [and no fire]

While my arXiv newspage today had a puzzling entry about modelling UFOs sightings in France, it also broadcast our revision of Reliable ABC model choice via random forests, version that we resubmitted today to Bioinformatics after a quite thorough upgrade, the most dramatic one being the realisation we could also approximate the posterior probability of

Predicting Titanic deaths on Kaggle IV: random forest revisited

On July 19th I used randomForest to predict the deaths on Titanic in the Kaggle competition. Subsequently I found that both bagging and boosting gave better predictions than randomForest. This I found somewhat unsatisfactory, hence I am now revisi...

ggRandomForests: Visually Exploring random forests. V1.1.1 release.

Release early and often. http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/ggRandomForests/index.html I may have been aggressive numbering the first CRAN release at v1.0, but there’s no going back now. The design of the feature set is complete even if the code has some catching up to… Continue reading →

reliable ABC model choice via random forests

After a somewhat prolonged labour (!), we have at last completed our paper on ABC model choice with random forests and submitted it to PNAS for possible publication. While the paper is entirely methodological, the primary domain of application of ABC model choice methods remains population genetics and the diffusion of this new methodology to
