This week we will introduce ensemble methods. In brief, this is a clever trick to increase the performance of the basic methods we’ve already seen by utilizing randomization and combining many models.
After completing this week, you are expected to be able to:
- Understand how using many trees (for example a random forest) can improve performance.
- Use a random forest to perform regression and classification.
- Use boosting to perform regression and classification.
