Data mining : practical machine learning tools and by Ian H. Witten

By Ian H. Witten

Data Mining: useful desktop studying instruments and strategies, Fourth variation, offers an intensive grounding in computing device studying techniques, in addition to useful recommendation on utilising those instruments and methods in real-world information mining occasions. This hugely expected fourth version of the main acclaimed paintings on info mining and laptop studying teaches readers every little thing they should understand to get going, from getting ready inputs, examining outputs, comparing effects, to the algorithmic equipment on the middle of winning info mining approaches.

Extensive updates replicate the technical alterations and modernizations that experience taken position within the box because the final version, together with monstrous new chapters on probabilistic tools and on deep studying. Accompanying the ebook is a brand new model of the preferred WEKA computing device studying software program from the college of Waikato. Authors Witten, Frank, corridor, and buddy contain present day concepts coupled with the tools on the innovative of up to date research.

Sample text

The tree calls first for a test on tear production rate, and the first two branches correspond to the two possible outcomes. If tear production rate is reduced (the left branch), the outcome is none. If it is normal (the right branch), a second test is made, this time on astigmatism. 2 Decision tree for the contact lens data. 2 SIMPLE EXAMPLES: THE WEATHER PROBLEM AND OTHERS 15 that dictates the contact lens recommendation for that case. The question of what is the most natural and easily understood format for the output from a machine learning scheme is one that we will return to in Chapter 3.

He was pleased that a third of the rules coincided with ones he used himself and was delighted to gain new insight from some of the others. Performance tests indicated that the learned rules were slightly superior to the handcrafted ones that had previously been elicited from the expert, and this result was confirmed by subsequent use in the chemical factory. It is interesting to note, however, that the system was put into use not because of its good performance but because the domain expert approved of the rules that had been learned.

38 ? 4% ? 12 gen ? full ? full good ... 0 ? none 40 ? 4 ? 3(b) is a more complex decision tree that represents the same dataset. In fact, this is a more accurate representation of the actual dataset that was used to create the tree. But it is not necessarily a more accurate representation of the underlying concept of good versus bad contracts. Look down the left branch. It doesn’t seem to make sense intuitively that, if the working hours exceed 36, a contract is bad if there is no health-plan contribution or a full health-plan contribution but is good if there is a half health-plan contribution.
