C4.5 is a decision tree tool.

PC4.5 builds classification trees in parallel.

EC4.5 improves on C4.5 by adopting the best among three strategies at each node construction. The first strategy uses a binary search of thresholds instead of the linear search of C4.5. The second strategy adopts a counting sort method instead of the quicksort of C4.5. The third strategy uses a main-memory version of the RainForest algorithm for constructing decision trees. This implementation computes the same decision trees as C4.5 with a performance gain of up to 5 times.

University of Texas, Austin

software.html#cn2

CN2 algorithm inductively learns a set of propositional if...then... rules from a set of training examples. To do this, it performs a general-to-specific beam search through rule-space for the "best" rule, removes training examples covered by that rule, then repeats until no more "good" rules can be found. The algorithm was later improved to replace this evaluation function with the Laplace estimate (EWSL-91 paper, below), and also to induce unordered rule sets as well as ordered rule lists ("decision lists").

IND   NASA Ames Research Center

A common approach to supervised classification and prediction in artificial intelligence and statistical pattern recognition is the use of decision trees. A tree is "grown" from data using a recursive partitioning algorithm to create a tree which (hopefully) has good prediction of classes on new data. 

IND consist of four basic kinds of routines; data manipulation routines, tree generation routines, tree testing routines, and tree display routines. The data manipulation routines are used to partition a single large data set into smaller training and test sets. The generation routines are used to build classifiers. The test routines are used to evaluate classifiers and to classify data using a classifier. And the display routines are used to display classifiers in various formats. 

export restrictions Unix   Decision trees. Standard algorithms are Breiman, Friedman, Olshen, and Stone; and Id3 and its successor C4 (by Quinlan). As well as reimplementing parts of these algorithms and offering experimental control suites, IND also introduces Bayesian and MML methods and search in growing trees. These produce more accurate class probability estimates that are important in applications like diagnosis.

MLC++ (V2.0 and higher) includes improvements to MLC++. These improvements are research domain only and are available in both source and object code formats. MLC++ is an attempt to extract commonalities of machine learning algorithms and decompose them for a unified view that is simple, coherent, and extensible.

MLC++ (up to version 1.3.X) was developed at Stanford University and was public domain; that version is still distributed as such by SGI. MineSet client and server modules are supported on all SGI platforms running IRIX 6.2 or above. MineSet functionality can also be made available on PCs running Hummingbird Communication's Exceed 3D and other UNIX X servers supporting the industry-standard OpenGL. Informix, Oracle, Sybase MineSet supports generation and analysis of association rules and classification models, used for prediction, scoring, segmentation, and profiling. Combining these models with animated, interactive visualisation. MineSet supports three classification models: decision trees, option trees, and evidence (Simple-Bayes) classifiers.

By assessing the results gained from each stage of the process, the user can determine how to model new questions raised by the previous results, and thus return to the exploration phase for additional refinement of the data.

F VTT Information Technology performs both research and customer-specific tasks in data mining area. Current research efforts concentrate on integrating data mining methods to business processes and on developing methods for handling temporal and incomplete data. To improve possibility of successful customer data mining project, VTT Information Technology offers a systematic process and an extensive knowledge about large amount of data mining techniques. The approach is to analyse customer problems thoroughly and to select a suitable method specifically for each problem. Furthermore, organisation of raw data and preprocessing data is an important part of each project to guarantee reliability of the results. Finally, applying data mining results to solve real problems of the end-user is often neglected. To obtain maximum usability of the results, also this part of the process must be carried out.

VTT Information Technology has a strong participation in various application areas when applying data mining techniques. Some examples of the application areas:

  • Supermarket chains can analyse customer market baskets to determine what goods are typically purchased together. With the contemporary tendency to customer loyalty cards and mobile commerce applications, a connection of demografic information about customers to their market baskets offers possibilities to perform customer profiling and customer-specific marketing. 
  • Industrial process analysis using data mining methods offers possibilities to improve process stability and anticipate abnormal behaviour of the process in advance. 
  • In telecommunications environment, alarm analysis can be applied to find causal relationships within large amounts of alarms in telecommunications networks. 
  • DNA sequence analyses can be performed using data mining technologies to find interesting patterns describing various genomes.
  • In equipment planning applications, data mining can be used to reduce planning and construction time of complex equipments by using existing knowledge of previous work.
  • Applying data mining to logistic networks helps transport companies in analysing traffic flows and making improvements to their collection and delivery operations. 
Whether you are planning how to utilise the information stored in your data warehouse, or you have a specific business problem, we have the knowledge not only from the data mining techniques but also to transfer the mining results into a profitable business. Our research team has the ability to provide confidential commissions or longer term large-scale research projects to apply the latest technology to be used in a business environment.
