Decision trees in epidemiological research.

In many studies, it is of interest to identify population subgroups that are relatively homogeneous with respect to an outcome. The nature of these su...

Objective consensus from decision trees.
Consensus-based approaches provide an alternative to evidence-based decision making, especially in situations where high-level evidence is limited. Our aim was to demonstrate a novel source of information, objective consensus based on recommendations

VC-dimension of univariate decision trees.
In this paper, we give and prove the lower bounds of the Vapnik-Chervonenkis (VC)-dimension of the univariate decision tree hypothesis class. The VC-dimension of the univariate decision tree depends on the VC-dimension values of its subtrees and the

Discovering Patterns in Brain Signals Using Decision Trees.
Even with emerging technologies, such as Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) systems, understanding how our brains work is a very difficult challenge. So we propose to use a data mining technique to help us in this task. As a case of study, we analyzed t

Comparative study of biodegradability prediction of chemicals using decision trees, functional trees, and logistic regression.
Biodegradation is the principal environmental dissipation process of chemicals. As such, it is a dominant factor determining the persistence and fate of organic chemicals in the environment, and is therefore of critical importance to chemical managem

[Role of statisticians in epidemiological research].
The relevance of statistical methods for epidemiological research in rheumatology is under discussion. Different from randomized clinical studies in observational studies, the danger of a systematic bias always exists due to prognostic differences be

Scandinavian epidemiological research in gastroenterology and hepatology.
In the last decades, a large number of epidemiological studies in gastroenterology and hepatology have originated from the Scandinavian countries. With the help of large health databases, with good validity and other registries related to patient out

Block-Based Connected-Component Labeling Algorithm Using Binary Decision Trees.
In this paper, we propose a fast labeling algorithm based on block-based concepts. Because the number of memory access points directly affects the time consumption of the labeling algorithms, the aim of the proposed algorithm is to minimize neighborh

Building decision trees for diagnosing intracavitary uterine pathology.
To build decision trees to predict intrauterine disease, based on a clinical data set, and using mathematical software.

OmniGA: Optimized Omnivariate Decision Trees for Generalizable Classification Models.
Classification problems from different domains vary in complexity, size, and imbalance of the number of samples from different classes. Although several classification models have been proposed, selecting the right model and parameters for a given cl

Safety validation of decision trees for hepatocellular carcinoma.
To evaluate a different decision tree for safe liver resection and verify its efficiency.
