A random forest (RF) is a classifier consisting of a large ensemble of classification trees induced from data. RF induction is one of the most accurate machine-learning algorithms available. I will describe how RF-based classification was used for the prediction of Candida infection in intensive care patients, as well as some of the pros and cons of using RFs.
