What is Decision Tree Classifier?
Decision tree is a popular classifier that does not require any knowledge or parameter setting. The approach is supervised learning. Given a training data, we can induce a decision tree. From a decision tree we can easily create rules about the data. Using decision tree, we can easily predict the classification of unseen records. In this decision tree tutorial, you will learn how to use, and how to build a decision tree in a very simple explanation
