Convert your randomForest model into a standardized representation. The returned representation is easy to be interpreted by the user and ready to be used as an argument in treeshap() function.

randomForest.unify(rf_model, data)



An object of randomForest class. At the moment, models built on data with categorical features are not supported - please encode them before training.


Reference dataset. A data.frame or matrix with the same columns as in the training set of the model. Usually dataset used to train model.


a unified model representation - a model_unified.object object


Binary classification models with a target variable that is a factor with two levels, 0 and 1, are supported
