Classification trees have been successfully used in several application fields. However, continuous attributes cannot be used directly when building classification trees, but they must be first discretized with clustering techniques, which require some degree of subjectivity. We propose an approach to build classification trees that does not require the discretization of the continuous attributes. The approach is an extension of existing methods for building classification trees and is based on the informatio…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
