Q10. What is decision tree ?
Ans. A decision tree is a decision support tool that uses a tree-like model of decisions and their possible consequences, including chance event outcomes, resource costs and utility.
Q11. Define supervised learning.
Ans. Supervised learning is also known as associative learning, in which the network is trained by providing it with input and matching output patterns.
Q12. Define unsupervised learning ?
Ans. Unsupervised learning is also known as self-organization, in which an output unit is trained to respond to clusters of pattern within the input.
Q13. Define well defined learning problem.
Ans. A computer program is said to learn from experience E with respect to some class of tasks T and performance measure P, if its performance at tasks in T, as measured by P, improves with experience E.
Q14. What are the features of learning problems ?
Ans. Features of learning problems are :
1. The class of tasks (T).
2. The measure of performance to be improved (P).
3. The source of experience (E).
Q15. Define decision tree learning.
Ans. Decision tree learning is the predictive modeling approaches used in statistics, data mining and machine learning. It uses a decision tree to go from observations about an item to conclusions about the
item’s target values.
Q16. What are the types of decision tree ?
Ans. There are two types of decision tree :
1. Classification tree
2. Regression tree
Q17. Define classification tree and regression tree.
Ans. Classification tree : A classification tree is an algorithm where the target variable is fixed. This algorithm is used to identify the class within which a target variable would fall.
Regression tree : A regression tree is an algorithm where the target variable is not fixed and this algorithm is used to predict its value.
