Iterative rule induction methods

  title={Iterative rule induction methods},
  author={Nitin Indurkhya and Sholom M. Weiss},
  journal={Applied Intelligence},
We examine heuristic techniques for inducing production rules to cover artificially generated boolean expressions with irrelevant noise attributes. The results of different rule induction methods are compared, and it is shown that an iterative tree-based single-best-rule technique performs best on a set of widely-studied applications. We also introduce a new class of iterative Swap-1 rule induction techniques that also solve these problems. While the primary focus is on rule-based solutions… CONTINUE READING
