Interpretation of Data Mining Prediction Model Using Decision Tree

  • Published : 2000.12.01


Data mining usually deal with undesigned massive data containing many variables for which their characteristics and association rules are unknown, therefore it is actually not easy to interpret the results of analysis. In this paper, it is shown that decision tree can be very useful in interpreting data mining prediction model using two real examples.
