BCMS Honours Topic: "Alternating regression trees."
Alternating decision trees are powerful for classification problems. They are related to decision trees but include option nodes as well as decision nodes. Because of this they are competitive with ensemble classifier. This project investigates algorithms for learning alternating regression trees where the target to be predicted is numeric. The resulting algorithms will be compared to regression trees, model trees, and ensemble thereof on benchmark data sets.
