This paper focuses on the study of the error composition of a fuzzy decision tree induction method recently proposed by the authors, called soft decision trees. This error may be expressed as a sum of three types of error: residual error, bias and variance. The paper studies empirically the tradeo between bias and variance in a soft decision tree method and… CONTINUE READING
