Rule Extraction from a Decision Tree
Rules are easier to understand than large trees
One rule is created for each path from the root to a leaf
Each attribute-value pair along a path forms a conjunction: the leaf holds the class prediction
Rules are mutually exclusive and exhaustive
Example: Rule extraction from our buys_computer decision-tree IF age = young AND student = no THEN buys_computer = no IF age = young AND student = yes THEN buys_computer = yes IF age = mid-age THEN buys_computer = yes IF age = old AND credit_rating = excellent THEN buys_computer = no IF age = old AND credit_rating = fair THEN buys_computer = yes
