Decision tree learning Training data D = {( x 1 , y 1 ),…, ( x N , y N )} each x i = ( x 1 i ,…., x d i ) is a d -dimensional feature vector each y i is the target label (class) of the i-th data point Training algorithm: Initial tree = the root, corresponding to all items in D A node is a leaf if all its data items have the same y At each non-leaf node: find the feature x i with the highest information gain, create a new child for each value of x i , distribute the items accordingly. 4 CS440/ECE448: Intro AI

Information Gain How much information are we gaining by splitting node S on attribute A with values V(A) ? Information required before the split: H(S parent ) Information required after the split: i V(A) P(S child_i )H(S child_i ) Gain ( S parent , A ) = H ( S parent ) ! H ( S child i ) i " V ( A ) N # S child i S parent

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
