Description/Abstract

This paper treats the problem of construction of efficient decision trees. Construction of optimal decision trees is an NP-complete problem and, therefore, a heuristic approach for the design of efficient decision trees is considered. The approach is based on information theoretic concepts and the proposed algorithm provides us with a simple procedure for the construction of near-optimal decision trees.
