Many data mining and machine learning algorithms require databases in which objects are described by discrete attributes. However, it is very common that the attributes are in the ratio or interval scales. In order to apply these algorithms, the original attributes must be transformed into the nominal or ordinal scale via discretization. An appropriate… CONTINUE READING
