Estimating bicycle demand distribution

Let's use a different regression method to solve the bicycle demand distribution problem. We will use the random forest regressor to estimate the output values. A random forest is a collection of decision trees. This basically uses a set of decision trees that are built using various subsets of the dataset, and then it uses averaging to improve the overall performance.

Getting ready

The first two columns correspond to the serial number and the actual date, so we won't use them for our analysis. The last three columns correspond ...
