dc.description.abstract Attributional ruletrees are proposed as an extension of the current ruleset representation used by AQ type learning. The ruletrees split a multiclass classification problem into separate subproblems using a class splitting attribute. The resulting representation can be graphically represented as a tree whose root is assigned the class splitting attribute, branches stemming from the root are values (or sets of values) determining subsets of classes, and leaves are assigned ruleset families for classifying events to classes in these subsets. The values on the branches from the root thus define preconditions for applying ruleset families. Ruletrees are easy to interpret and understand, and can be generated by a relatively simple modification of the AQ algorithm presented below.
