Ensemble Methods - Is random forest an ensemble method?


As an ensemble learning approach, yes, random forests (or random decision forests) are a good fit. Classification and regression are only two of the many tasks that benefit from its ability to train by generating a large number of decision trees. When used for classification problems, the random forest will produce the class that the majority of trees have picked.
