randomUniformForest: Random Uniform Forests for Classification, Regression and Unsupervised Learning

Ensemble model, for classification, regression and unsupervised learning, based on a forest of unpruned and randomized binary decision trees. Each tree is grown by sampling, with replacement, a set of variables at each node. Each cut-point is generated randomly, according to the continuous Uniform distribution. For each tree, data are either bootstrapped or subsampled. The unsupervised mode introduces clustering, dimension reduction and variable importance, using a three-layer engine. Random Uniform Forests are mainly aimed to lower correlation between trees (or trees residuals), to provide a deep analysis of variable importance and to allow native distributed and incremental learning.
