  author={Chin-Sheng Huang and Yu-Ju Lin and Che-Chern Lin},
  journal={WSEAS Transactions on Computers archive},
In this paper, we use decision trees to establish the decision models for insurance purchases. Five major types of insurances are involved in this study including life, annuity, health, accident, and investment-oriented insurances. Four decision tree methods were used to build the decision models including Chi-square Automatic Interaction Detector (CHAID), Exhaustive Chi-square Automatic Interaction Detector (ECHAID), Classification and Regression Tree (CRT), and Quick-Unbiased-Efficient… Expand
The Development of Discrete Decision Tree Induction for Categorical Data
In decision analysis, decision trees are commonly used as a visual support tool for identifying the best strategy that is most likely to reach a desired goal. A decision tree is a hierarchicalExpand

An effective sampling method for decision trees considering comprehensibility and accuracy
Because the target domain of data mining using decision trees usually contains a lot of data, sampling is needed. But selecting proper samples for a given decision tree algorithm is not easy, becauseExpand
Modeling and Testing Landslide Hazard Using Decision Tree
A decision tree model is proposed for specifying the importance of 21 factors causing the landslides in a wide area of Penang Island, Malaysia which identified slope angle, distance from drainage, surface area, slope aspect, and cross curvature as most important factors. Expand
Reduction of Risk Factors in Risk Assessment: An Identification Tree Approach
A variant of decision tree called Identification tree for reducing number of risk factors used in assessment is offered, which uses auto insurance as a case study and employs historical evidences of different vehicles as risk factors. Expand

Tele-market Modelling of Fuzzy Consumer Behaviour
This paper attempts to assess the fuzzy actions of buying behaviour from a multinational viewpoint using data that have been collected on consumer risk assessment while attempting to buy a product on the internet. Expand
Improved mining of software complexity data on evolutionary filtered training sets
It is argued that a classifier trained by a filtered dataset captures a more general knowledge model and should therefore perform better also on unseen cases and the method uses an ensemble of evolutionary induced decision trees to identify the outliers. Expand


Determination of insurance policy using a hybrid model of AHP, fuzzy logic, and Delphi technique: a case study
Five models have been built for selecting insurance policies, respectively, including life, annuity, health, accident, and investment-oriented insurances, using analytical hierarchy process (AHP), fuzzy logic and the Delphi technique. Expand
Evaluation Models for Choosing Insurance Policy Using the AHP, Fuzzy Logic, and Delphi Technique
Based on a previous study, this paper presents evaluation models for selecting insurance policies. Five models are built for five insurances, respectively, including life, annuity, health, accident,Expand
Polynomial-fuzzy decision tree structures for classifying medical data
By trading-off comprehensibility and performance using a multi-objective genetic programming optimization algorithm, this paper can induce polynomial-fuzzy decision trees (PFDT) that are smaller, more compact and of better performance than their linear decision tree (LDT) counterparts. Expand
Estimating Performance Gains for Voted Decision Trees
Estimators of predictive performance for voted decision trees induced from bootstrap bagged or adaptive boosted resampling are described and it is shown that these estimates are usually quite accurate, with occasional weaker estimates. Expand
Decision tree search methods in fuzzy modeling and classification
Two different approaches of decision tree search algorithms are proposed: bottom-up and top-down and four different measures for selecting the most appropriate set of inputs at every branching node (or decision node) of the tree. Expand
