Summary

The chapter began with two important variations of the CART technique: the bagging technique and random forests. Random forests are particularly a very modern technique, invented in 2001 by Breiman. The goal of the chapter was to familiarize you with these modern techniques. Together with the German credit data and the complete revision of the earlier techniques with the low birth weight problem, it is hoped that you benefitted a lot from the book and will have gained enough confidence to apply these tools in your own analytical problems.
