Techopedia Explains Scikit-Learn

Some of the big key elements of Scikit-learn useful for machine learning include classification, regression and clustering algorithms. For example, Scikit-learn supports work on random forests, where individual digital trees hold node information that is combined in multiple tree architectures to achieve a forest approach. Another way of talking about this is that each tree involves clustered nodes in a tree topology, and analysis from various trees is added together to get a global approach that more accurately crunches data to show outcomes.

In addition to random forest, Scikit-learn helps with gradient boosting, vector machines and other elements of machine learning that are key to achieving results. As the overarching resource, Scikit-learn works with tools like SciPy and matplotlib that provide visualization and much more.
