Internal estimates monitor error, strength, and correlation and these are used to show the response to increasing the number of features used in the forest, and are also applicable to regression.Expand

This chapter discusses tree classification in the context of medicine, where right Sized Trees and Honest Estimates are considered and Bayes Rules and Partitions are used as guides to optimal pruning.Expand

Tests on real and simulated data sets using classification and regression trees and subset selection in linear regression show that bagging can give substantial gains in accuracy.Expand

If the goal as a field is to use data to solve problems, then the statistical community needs to move away from exclusive dependence on data models and adopt a more diverse set of tools.Expand

Tests on real and simulated data sets using classification and regression trees and subset selection in linear regression show that bagging can give substantial gains in accuracy.Expand

Abstract In regression analysis the response variable Y and the predictor variables X 1 …, Xp are often replaced by functions θ(Y) and O1(X 1), …, O p (Xp ). We discuss a procedure for estimating… Expand

A new method, called the nonnegative (nn) garrote, is proposed for doing subset regression. It both shrinks and zeroes coefficients. In tests on real and simulated data, it produces lower prediction… Expand

In model selection, usually a best predictor is chosen from a collection {μ(.,s)} of predictors where μ(.,s) is the minimum least-squares predictor in a collection U s of predictors. Here s is a… Expand
