Title: Trees and their building blocks
Authors: Heidi Seibold - Helmholtz AI (Germany) [presenting]
Abstract: Tree-based methods continue to be popular in single trees and ensembles, and they come in various forms and implementations. We want to take a bird's-eye view on tree algorithms and what they have in common: the general building blocks such as transformation, variable selection, and splitting. In particular, we will share what we have learned about trees in our work on the R package partykit.
