Random Forests are effective and intuitive models used in classification and regression problems. They are intuitive because they provide clear path to a result and are based on underlying Decision Tree structures. A Decision Tree is a machine learning model built using series of decisions based on variable values to take one path or the other. A Random Forest is a collection of Decision Trees that improve the prediction over a single Decision Tree.
