One of the best features of Random Forests is that it has built-in Feature Selection. Explicability is one of the things we often lose when we go from traditional statistics to Machine Learning, but Random
Ah, hyperparameter tuning. Time & compute-intensive. Frequently containing weird non-linearities in how changing a parameter changes the score and/or the time it takes to train the model.
RandomizedSearchCV goes noticeably faster than a full
GridSearchCV but it still takes
