HPSplit is in Base SAS/STAT as a standard offering. Random forests are a staple of predictive modeling. Move HP Forest out of SAS Enterprise Miner and put it in the SAS/STAT product. Random forests are 20 years old now, it is nowhere near a novel technique.


There are other packages that need moving over but this one is a no-brainer, at least to me.

Yes please! Support vector machines and ensemble tree models (random forests and boosted trees) are algorithms dating back to the 90s. I concur it's time to move them to SAS/STAT.

Thanks for your excellent support

Just saw this, I definitely agree with both users. It's about time to include HPFOREST/HPSVM and other basic Enterprise Miner procedures in SAS/STAT. These algorithms aren't novel anymore...
