The quality of a decision tree is usually evaluated through its complexity and its generalization accuracy. Tree-simpliÞcation procedures aim at optimizing these two performance criteria. Among them, data reduction techniques differ from pruning by their simpliÞcation strategy. Actually, while pruning algorithms directly control tree size to combat the overÞtting problem, data reduction techniques perform a data preprocessing prior to decision tree construction to improve the learning set… CONTINUE READING
