[ML video] How is OOB_score and n_estimator are related


(satish) #1

My understanding is that if we have n_estimator is more than 1 then OOB_score is a average of all the tree .
Or is there any better or correct way to explain this .

I will give it a shot,
The oob score error is the average error for each z_i calculated using predictions from the trees that do not contain z_i in their respective bootstrap sample…

Probability is (2/3)
It’s straight from the wonderful curated sklearn docs…

Ok to restate what you have written and associate with the Bull dozer problem

When the predication of unit sale value for 10 trees are [9000,8000,…] and so forth and the average of the 8500 and the actual value is 8400 the error will be 100 and OOB score will be 0 % .

Is my understanding correct ?
