Boruta is a feature-selection algorithm based on randomForest. In my opinion we should have a tag for this algorithm.

Currently there are 23 questions related to boruta.

What do you think?

    $\begingroup$ That seems reasonable on its face. I don't know much about it, how distinctive is it? Can questions about boruta be grouped under an existing tag? $\endgroup$ – gung - Reinstate Monica May 22 '18 at 16:39
  • $\begingroup$ Well they could be grouped under the randomForest tag or under some kind of feature selection, but in my opinion it is a very specific type of feature selection just like PCA is a specific type of dimensionality reducation. $\endgroup$ – Ferdi May 22 '18 at 16:46

    $\begingroup$ It seems reasonable for me. The tags are for making navigating on the site easier, it may serve the purpose. $\endgroup$ – Tim May 22 '18 at 16:48
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, RF isn't specific enough. Would having [random-forest] & [feature-selection] be OK? If not, we should have the tag. There seems to be adequate demand for it. If you do create the tag, be sure to create an excerpt to guide its usage. $\endgroup$ – gung - Reinstate Monica May 22 '18 at 16:49
  • $\begingroup$ Okay I decided to create a tag $\endgroup$ – Ferdi May 23 '18 at 7:01

I just created the boruta tag. Feel free to propose a more detailled wiki as I just have superficial knowledge of the algorithm.
