Decisions Tree Ensembles for KNIME version 3.6.0.v201807031236 by KNIME AG, Zurich, Switzerland
Learns a random forest (an ensemble of decision trees) for regression. Each of the regression tree models is learned on a different set of rows (records) and/or a different set of columns (describing attributes), whereby the latter can also be a bit/byte/double vector descriptor (e.g. molecular fingerprint). The output model describes an ensemble of regression tree models and is applied in the corresponding predictor node using a simple mean of the individual predictions.
For a more general description and suggested default parameters see the node description of the classification Random Forest Learner.
This node provides a subset of the functionality of the Tree Ensemble Learner (Regression). If you need additional functionality, please check out the Tree Ensemble Learner (Regression)
Select the attributes on which the model should be learned. You can choose from two modes.
Fingerprint attribute Uses a fingerprint/vector (bit, byte and double are possible) column to learn the model by treating each entry of the vector as separate attribute (e.g. a bit vector of length 1024 is expanded into 1024 binary attributes). The node requires all vectors to be of the same length.
Column attributes Uses ordinary columns in your table (e.g. String, Double, Integer, etc.) as attributes to learn the model on. The dialog allows to select the columns manually (by moving them to the right panel) or via a wildcard/regex selection (all columns whose names match the wildcard/regex are used for learning). In case of manual selection, the behavior for new columns (i.e. that are not available at the time you configure the node) can be specified as either Enforce exclusion (new columns are excluded and therefore not used for learning) or Enforce inclusion (new columns are included and therefore used for learning).
