Theories of Decision Trees and Random Forests
Objectives Decision trees and random forests have been used in our group for some years. It is good to have a review on its basic theory, limitation and recent developments. The study includes, but not limited to, the definition of decision trees, binary trees, multi-decision trees, ensemble methods, bagging, boosting, random forest, and applications to object recognition and super-resolution. Some attention must be given to "Randomness" theory and random trees. Please point out the significance of similarity and confidence measures. Give further examples (outside the paper(s)) of similarity and confidence measures, and the ways to achieve high confidence decision with a number of weak classifiers.
