  •  A quest for purity
  • Which attributes produces the purest node?
  • Get a smallest and top-down tree induction method using some kind of heuristic.
  • Information-theory based heuristic is the most popular
  • The total entropy of distribution before the split is minus the entropy of distribution after the split (in logarithm, the minus/negative means the entropy is less than 1 and this is same in probability)
  • Between attributes, the attributes that has the most bits of information is going to be chosen as the root node of decision tree.
  • Other attributes will be the branches of root node by the values of that node.
  • The purity is the… that there is no need to be branch, cause the values are clearly separated in groups.
