Regression Trees

Here are the slides I use for my course about “Regression Trees”. Because this course comes after the one about “Decision Trees”, only the special features for the handling of a continuous target attribute are highlighted. The described algorithms correspond roughly to the AID and the CART approaches.

Keywords: machine learning, supervised methods, regression tree, aid, cart, continuous class attribute
Slides: regression trees
