Title: Seeing the Forest for the Trees: Random Forests and
When you have thousands of variables that you can select from to
describe and predict whether active fracking is occurring, how do you
choose? Random forests are a learning method that uses
an ensemble of decision trees to build a predictive model.
We’ll discuss how to make a random forest and how we
used one to tell what measures from the microbiome and the sample site
best predicted active fracking status.
