Random Forest Algorithm


RandomForest is an ensemble method for classification or regression that reduces the chance of overfitting the data. Details of the method can be found in the Wikipedia article on Random Forests. The main implementation for R is in the randomForest package, but there are other implementations. See the CRAN view on Machine Learning.
