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. Ou...

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 subgroups can provide insight into effect mechanisms and suggest targets for tailored interventions. H

Consistency and inconsistency of consensus methods for inferring species trees from gene trees in the presence of ancestral population structure.
In the last few years, several statistically consistent consensus methods for species tree inference have been devised that are robust to the gene tree discordance caused by incomplete lineage sorting in unstructured ancestral populations. One source

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

Neural mechanisms underlying human consensus decision-making.
Consensus building in a group is a hallmark of animal societies, yet little is known about its underlying computational and neural mechanisms. Here, we applied a computational framework to behavioral and fMRI data from human participants performing a

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

PCA features.
Medical imaging techniques like fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) have been used to aid in the differential diagnosis of neurodegenerative brain diseases. In this study, the objective is to classify FDG-PET brain scans of subj

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

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
