I'm actually working on a similar issue and have codified an R package that runs randomForest as the local classifier along a pre-defined class hierarchy. you can find it in R-Forge under 'hie-ran-forest'. The package includes two ways to turn the local probabilities into a crisp class. stepwise majority rule-...

You can exclude variables by changing what's delivered to the function in the data argument. exclude_cols <- c('dummy_48','dummy_50','other_var_to_be_dropped') fit <- randomForest(result ~ ., data=df[ !names(df) %in% exclude_cols ] , importance=TRUE, ntree=2000) The subset argument to this function only works on a row basis....

Scikit-learn does use only the bootstrap sample for each tree to calculate the probability estimate of each class, right? No, it uses only the in-sample part, and therefore will not give very calibrated probability outputs (which I guess is what the paper suggests). You could get better probability estimates...

You can access the individual decision trees in the estimators_ attribute of a fitted random forest instance. You can even re-sample that attribute (it's just a Python list of decision tree objects) to add or remove trees and see the impact on the quality of the prediction of the resulting...

I've confirmed with a test case that the prediction for the randomForest regressor does not depend on the decision node values in the prediction field: > x <- data.frame(matrix(rnorm(20), nrow=10)) > y <- rnorm(10) > > model <- randomForest(x,y,ntree=1) > getTree(model,k=1) left daughter right daughter split var split point status...

Normalization Start by first normalizing the data in the range 0 to 1. This can be done using the following formula. Norm(e) = (e - Emin) / (Emax - Emin) for each value e in each vector. (I don't know how to put math symbols in here or I would.)...

Without knowing what Y is in your specific case, I think it is the source of your error. The documentation says that Y is an array of true class labels... True class labels can be a numeric vector, character matrix, vector cell array of strings or categorical vector. A categorical...

see varImp() in library caret, which supports all the ML algorithms you referenced.

You just exchanged new_values by test_new inside rbind. I changed it and tried the code below and could obtain data frame with all the tree data, numbered according to the tree: # Do some setup, and train a basic random forest model library(randomForest) data(iris) model <- randomForest(Species ~ ., data=iris)...

I believe this is possible by modifying the estimators_ and n_estimators attributes on the RandomForestClassifier object. Each tree in the forest is stored as a DecisionTreeClassifier object, and the list of these trees is stored in the estimators_ attribute. To make sure there is no discontinuity, it also makes sense...

Hopefully this helps. The names are all generic, but if you provide some example code and data I can clarify things. prediction <- predict(your_rf, testdata, type = "response") location <- prediction == testdata$target testdata[location,] ...

Question 1 - why does ntree show 1?: summary(rf) shows you the length of the objects that are included in your rf variable. That means that rf$ntree is of length 1. If you type on your console rf$tree you will see that it shows 800. Question 2 - does a...

Response from package maintainer: That parameter behaves as the way that Leo Breiman intended. The bug is in how the parameter was described. It’s the same as minsplit in the rpart:::rpart.control() function: the minimum number of observations that must exist in a node in order for a split to be...

Be careful in turning a list of string values into categorical ints as the model will likely interpret the integers as being numerically significant, but they probably are not. For instance, if: 'Dog'=1,'Cat'=2,'Horse'=3,'Mouse'=4,'Human'=5 Then the distance metric in your clustering algorithm would think that humans are more like mice than...

I have finally been able to solve the problem. The code is still slow due to the continuous copy operation performed in each split on the data. This is the working version of the algorithm. import numpy as np import sklearn as sk import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import pandas as...

Looks like you want to draw your data only form the training data.frame, so you should not be referencing Aggregate in your formula. Using the variable names actually in your test data, this seems to work just fine. randomForest(as.factor(Is.Customer) ~ oldTitleCount + youngTitleCount + totalActivities + Max.between.2.activities + Time.since100thactivity +...

You need to convert your char columns into factors. Factors are treated as integers internally whereas character fields are not. See the following small demonstration: Data: df <- data.frame(y = sample(0:1, 26, rep=T), x1=runif(26), x2=letters, stringsAsFactors=F) df$y <- as.factor(df$y) > str(df) 'data.frame': 26 obs. of 3 variables: $ y :...

You have to do some encoding before using fit. As it was told fit() does not accept Strings but you solve this. There are several classes that can be used : LabelEncoder : turn your string into incremental value OneHotEncoder : use One-of-K algorithm to transform your String into integer...

First, almost never use the $finalModel object for prediction. Use predict.train. This is one good example of why. There is some inconsistency between how some functions (including randomForest and train) handle dummy variables. Most functions in R that use the formula method will convert factor predictors to dummy variables because...

You need to specify type='response' for this to happen: Check this example: y <- rep(c(0,1),c(100,100)) x <- runif(200) df <- data.frame(y,x) fitgbm <- gbm(y ~ x, data=df, distribution = "bernoulli", n.trees = 100) predgbm <- predict(fitgbm, df, n.trees=100, type='response') Too simplistic but look at the summary of predgbm: > summary(predgbm)...

I agree the first quote is self-contradictory. Maybe the following would be better: The best results are also often reached with fully developed trees (max_depth=None and min_samples_split=1). Bear in mind though that these values are usually not guaranteed to be optimal. The best parameter values should always be cross-validated. For...

There is a default setting of ten trees apparently, you are using the default in your code: Parameters: n_estimators : integer, optional (default=10) The number of trees in the forest.

The reason that you don't see a difference is that you aren't using the caret package. You do load it into your environment with the library() command, but then you run randomForest() which doesn't use caret. I'll suggest starting by creating a data frame (or data.table) that contains only your...

Looks like a bug, but in your case it should work if you use RandomForestRegressor's own scorer (which coincidentally is R^2 score) by not specifying any scoring function in GridSearchCV: clf = GridSearchCV(ensemble.RandomForestRegressor(), tuned_parameters, cv=5, n_jobs=-1, verbose=1) EDIT: As mentioned by @jnothman in #4081 this is the real problem: scoring...

As far as I can tell this is not supported in the current version (1.2.1). The Python wrapper over the native Scala code (tree.py) defines only 'predict' functions which, in turn, call the respective Scala counterparts (treeEnsembleModels.scala). The latter make decisions by taking a vote among binary decisions. A much...

I can answer only the first part of your question. how can I attach the prediction results to the data frame To do this you can use the cbind function: Considering the results of your predictions: predict(rf) Turn them into a data frame predResults <- data.frame(predict(rf)) And update your original...

to use it for regression, you just have to set the var_type as CV_VAR_ORDERED i.e. var_type.at<uchar>(ATTRIBUTES_PER_SAMPLE, 0) = CV_VAR_ORDERED; and you might want to set the regression_accuracy to a very small number like 0.0001f. ...

Moving answer from comments. Try reducing the number of trees by setting a smaller n_estimators parameter. You can then try to control the tree depth using max_depth or min_samples_split and trade of depth for an increased number of estimators....

The error message is originating from R, there the list expected is an R list. Try using: RFl = robjects.vectors.ListVector([('X%i' % i, x) for i, x in enumerate(RF)]) edit: the constructor for ListVector wants names for the list elements ** 2nd edit:** However, the real path to a solution is...

The short version is no, if we look at RandomForestClassifier.scala you can see that it always simply selects the max. You could override the predict function if, but its not super clean. I've added a jira to track adding this.

Use randomForest(..., do.trace=T) to see the OOB error during training, by both class and ntree. (FYI you chose ntree=1 so you'll only get just one rpart tree, not a forest, this kind of defeats the purpose of using RF, and randomly choosing a subset of both features and samples. You...

When tree is split on numerical attribute, it is split on the condition like a>5. So, this condition effectively becomes binary variable and the criterion (information gain) is absolutely the same. P.S. For regression commonly used is the sum of squared errors (for each leaf, then sum over leaves). But...

Your RF model contains five decision trees. Class probabilities are calculated by dividing the number of decision trees that voted for a particular class by the total number of decision trees. In your example, one decision tree voted for class "versicolor" (1 / 5 = 0.2), and the remaining four...

RandomForest uses bootstrap to create many training sets by sampling the data with replacement (bagging). Each bootstrapped set is very close to the original data, but slightly different, since it may have multiples of the some points and some other points in the original data will be missing.
