Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


In the previous chapter we introduced the task of proactive data mining and sketched an algorithmic framework for solving the task: first build a prediction model and then use it for optimization. In this chapter, we focus on decision tree classifiers and describe in detail two possible ways of implementing proactive data mining using: (a) a ready-made decision tree algorithm, and (b) a novel decision tree algorithm. We designed this latter algorithm to support the optimization phase of the proposed framework.
