Project: Generative Random Forests: The Next Level


The work on generative random forests has started, but there is a long way to make them practical. This project aims at studying the drawbacks of such models and improving them with better ensemble ideas, gradient boosting, and/or other techniques already employed with decision trees and random forests but still not available for the generative counterpart. We may also explore means to learn the trees in a generative manner instead of discriminatively (as usually done for building classifiers). This could be useful, for instance, for creating a stronger generative model able to perform different queries and for multi-dimensional classification.
