We propose a new rule induction algorithm for solving classification problems via probability estimation. The main advantage of decision rules is their simplicity and good interpretability. While the early approaches to rule induction were based on sequential covering, we follow an approach in which a single decision rule is treated as a base classifier in an ensemble. The ensemble is built by greedily minimizing the negative loglikelihood which results in estimating the class conditional… CONTINUE READING
