Ensemble Models: Bagging and Boosting

Click to learn more about author Rosaria Silipo. Ensemble models combine multiple learning algorithms to improve the predictive performance of each algorithm alone. There are two main strategies to ensemble models — bagging and boosting — and many examples of predefined ensemble algorithms. Bootstrap aggregation, or bagging, is an ensemble meta-learning technique that trains many […]

From a Single Decision Tree to a Random Forest

Click to learn more about author Rosaria Silipo. The co-author of this column was Kathrin Melcher. Decision trees are a set of very popular supervised classification algorithms. They are very popular for a few reasons: They perform quite well on classification problems, the decisional path is relatively easy to interpret, and the algorithm to build […]
