Dealing with right-censored data in machine learning: Random Survival Forests

  • by

A couple of weeks ago, I started working with survival analysis. It was fairly new to me, so I had to dig into some new methods. There was one method that captured my attention: random survival forests (RSFs). It’s one of many statistical learning techniques designed to work with right-censored…

Personally, Random Forest is one of my favorite algorithms for supervised learning. It’s quick and dirty and still allows for some interpretation. However, R and the RandomForest package are somewhat cryptic when it comes to requirements not met to properly train the algorithm. I bumped a lot into this error…
