The Alternative Decision Tree Learning Algorithm

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The application of boosting procedures to decision tree algorithms has been shown to produce very accurate classifiers. These classifiers are in the form of a majority vote over a number of decision are often large, complex and difficult to interpret. This paper describes a new type of classification rule, the alternating decision tree, which is a generalization of decision tree, voted decision trees and voted stumps. At the same time classifiers of this type are relatively easy to interpret.
