To appear in W. Cohen & H. Hirsh (eds.), Machine Learning: Proceedings of the Eleventh International Conference. (New Brunswick NJ, July 1994.) Morgan Kaufmann, San Francisco CA. We discuss the implications of Holte’s recentlypublished article, which demonstrated that on the most commonly used data very simple classification rules are almost as accurate as decision trees produced by Quinlan’s C4.5.
