# Do we need a “boruta-tag”?

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?

• 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? – gung - Reinstate Monica May 22 '18 at 16:39
• 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. – Ferdi May 22 '18 at 16:46
• It seems reasonable for me. The tags are for making navigating on the site easier, it may serve the purpose. – Tim May 22 '18 at 16:48
• 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. – gung - Reinstate Monica May 22 '18 at 16:49
• Okay I decided to create a tag – Ferdi May 23 '18 at 7:01
