Time: 10:00am PST, 1:00pm EST
Duration: 45 minutes
Speaker: Charles Harrison, Marketing Statistician, Salford Systems

Why You Should Watch: Learn the fundamentals of tree-based machine learning algorithms and how to easily fine tune and improve your Random Forest regression models.

Abstract:
In this webinar we'll introduce you to two tree-based machine learning algorithms, CART® decision trees and RandomForests®. We will discuss the advantages of tree based techniques including their ability to automatically handle variable selection, variable interactions, nonlinear relationships, outliers, and missing values. We'll explore the CART algorithm, bootstrap sampling, and the Random Forest algorithm (all with animations) and compare their predictive performance using a real world dataset.
