Recycling decision trees in numeric domains

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A decision tree's classification performance can drop if the tree is used in a changed context such as different accent in speach recognition. This brittleness can partially be rectified by the use of a cheap second tier implemented as a linear classifier. The transfer of the tree to a novel context is accomplished by re-inducing the second tier, without the need to re-induce the more expensive first tier. Experiments reported in this paper indicate that quick adaptation to the target context can indeed be achieved.
