Hope you are holding on tight, Christmas soon!

**Updates: I'm only able to get the results in probability but I want it in pure binary (0 or 1). I tried using .predict instead of predict_proba(x_test) but then I get the error code "LIME does not currently support classifier models without probability scores. If this conflicts with your use case, please let us know:". Some of those that I have linked have used the predict and it has worked. Also I'm getting this output error (but the tables are showing at least) "UserWarning: X does not have valid feature names, but RandomForestClassifier was fitted with feature names warnings.warn("

I've tried following these guides https://www.kaggle.com/code/vikumsw/explaining-random-forest-model-with-lime and https://www.kaggle.com/code/srushtipujari/predicting-german-credit-default/notebook . As I prefer not to completely copy their code I would like an alternative if you have one or suggestions on how to improve my code :)! This is the dataset

Below you will find my whole code:

I would really love to get this one to work since I think it's really nice to get that interpretability aspect in there for the random forest model.


  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to DS Stack Exchange. It would be nice to have the error you have with your code. $\endgroup$ Dec 7, 2022 at 19:01
  • $\begingroup$ Added the error at the bottom that I get when trying to apply the [:,1] to the RF2.predict_proba(x) to convert the results into binary outcomes. @Nicolas Martin $\endgroup$
