- Determining if a ML model is statistically significant...

Hello,

How do we check if a ML model is statistically significant? For models like linear regression, logistic regression, etc. there are tests (t-tests, F-tests, etc.) that will tell us if the model, trained on some dataset, is statistically significant or not.

But in the case of ML models, like decision trees, SVM, or neural nets, how do we determine if the model is statistically significant? I have not seen any specific test to do that...

Thank you!
