I’m going to keep this tutorial light on math, because the goal is just to give a general understanding.
The idea of Monte Carlo methods is this—generate some random samples for some random variable of interest, then use these samples to compute values you’re interested in.
I know, super broad. The truth is Monte Carlo has a ton of different applications. It’s…Continue
Random Forest is a machine learning algorithm used for classification, regression, and feature selection. It's an ensemble technique, meaning it combines the output of one weaker technique in order to get a stronger result.
The weaker technique in this case is a decision tree. Decision trees work by splitting the and re-splitting the data by…Continue
