Random Forest Classifier

A Random Forest classifier is one of the most effective machine learning models for predictive analytics. Refer to the chapter on random forest regression for background on random forests.

Introductory Example

In this example, we will use the Mushrooms dataset.1

import turicreate as tc

# Load the data
data =  tc.SFrame.read_csv('https://raw.githubusercontent.com/apple/turicreate/master/src/python/turicreate/test/mushroom.csv')

# Label 'c' is edible
data['label'] = data['label'] == 'c'

# Make a train-test split
train_data, test_data = data.random_split(0.8)

# Create a model.
model = tc.random_forest_classifier.create(train_data, target='label',
                                           max_depth = 3)

# Save predictions to an SArray.
predictions = model.predict(test_data)

# Evaluate the model and save the results into a dictionary
results = model.evaluate(test_data)

See the chapter on random forest regression for additional tips and tricks of using the random forest classifier model.
