Predictive Modeling Workflow

In MGET 0.8a42, we introduced a simplified workflow for predictive modeling, shown here for generalized linear models (GLMs). The new workflow is the same for all model types (GLM, GAM, etc.) and consists of three steps: Fit the model to training data in a table. This works the same as before. The model formula specifies …

Random Forest Tools

As part of our recent overhaul of the predictive modeling tools, we added support for random forests as a new modeling type. Random forest (Breiman, 2001) is machine learning algorithm that fits many classification or regression tree (CART) models to random subsets of the input data and uses the combined result (the forest) for prediction. A …
