An Improved Algorithm for Incremental Induction of Decision Trees

  title={An Improved Algorithm for Incremental Induction of Decision Trees},
  author={Paul E. Utgoff},
This paper presents an algorithm for incremental induction of decision trees that is able to handle both numeric and symbolic variables. In order to handle numeric variables, a new tree revision operator called`slewing' is introduced. Finally, a non-incremental method is given for nding a decision tree based on a direct metric of a candidate tree.
