Discussion on fifty years of classification and regression trees

Abstract

With ‘Fifty Years of Classification and Regression Trees’, Wei-Yin Loh has given a concise historical overview of the central developments in recursive partitioning. It is interesting to read how the successive improvements were triggered by their predecessor algorithms—especially as the author has (co-)authored many of the milestones in our field. Moreover, I appreciate his emphasis on open-source implementations, which make the methodology available to scientists from all disciplines and all around the world.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
