The Altair Community is migrating to a new platform to provide a better experience for you. The RapidMiner Community will merge with the Altair Community at the same time. In preparation for the migration, both communities are on read-only mode from July 15th - July 24th, 2024. Technical support via cases will continue to work as is.

Boosting, Bagging and Random Forest

I ran Adaboost, Bagging and Random Forest on my data. The performance vector results were not really different from the decision tree performance vector result. So I used the Sonar data and ran, Decision Tree followed by Adaboost, Bagging and Random Forest. Though in the tutorial it is mentioned that the performance vector accuracy improves I still got similar results.

    Here's an example of using the Stacking operator for Ensemble modelling.  It creates a Forest of Forests to produce greater mine detection accuracy.
