that when additional time is available LSID3 should be preferred over ID3-k for the task of learning this concept. Figure 6 shows the performance of both algorithms when applied on the Tic-tac-toe dataset. In this case, the average run time of ID3 is 0.004 second, while C4.5 finished in 0.008 second. LSID3 dominates ID3-k at any point of time, both in terms of accuracy and size. ID3-k is clearly not

This sparse solution also improves the performance as observed in the experiments. 5.2.1 Tic-Tac-Toe Data Set The Tic-Tac-Toe Endgame database is a UCI (Blake and Merz (1998)) data set contributed by Aha, encoding the complete set of possible board configurations at the end of the tictac-toe games.

is a board game playedona3by 3 grid. There are two players X and O, who alternate putting X's and O's on the board. In order to win a player must get three X's or O's in a row. The tic-tac-toe dataset contains the 958 legal tic-tac-toe endgame boards (assuming X moves first). The classification task is to determine if X won the game. 11 Table 2: Classifier error rates.

comparison, we used the Wilcoxon signed rank test and found that MFS1 and MFS2 were significantly better than all others with a confidence level greater than 99%. MFS only performed poorly on two datasets: Iris and Tic-Tac-Toe For Iris, both MFS1 and MFS2 gave the lowest accuracy out of all the classifiers. This can possibly be explained by the small number of features in the Iris dataset. With

to concepts where some features are globally relevant; the feature subset selection algorithm used here is conducting a best-first search and is thus able to capture interactions. The tic-tac-toe dataset is an example where features are locally relevant; the Monk1, Monk2, and parity5+5 datasets have feature interactions. 5 Related Work Because they permit one to display succinctly the conditions

Tic-tac-toe is an artifical data set which does not include any redundant instances[7]. By this feature of data set, the experimental result of tictac-toe is characteristic.

increasing the running time considerably is to dynamically decide on the number of bootstrap samples needed. An abstract description of this problem is described in (Kohavi 1994). For the artificial datasets: Monk 1-3, parity, and tic-tac-toe the test sets include the space of all possible instances, and therefore the test set accuracy is the actual real accuracy. For the real datasets, our accuracy

the difference between the number of rules discovered by Ant-Miner and C4.5 is quite large, as follows. In the Tic-tac-toe and Dermatology data sets Ant-Miner discovered 8.5 and 7.0 rules, respectively, whereas C4.5 discovered 83 and 23.2 rules, respectively. In both data sets C4.5 achieved a better accuracy rate. So, in these two data sets

Significantly, the value 25% (the default value in C4.5) was chosen for all datasets except tic-tac-toe (where C4.5-AP halved the error rate of C4.5) and glass2 (where C4.5-AP improved absolute accuracy by over 4%). For the m parameter, 1 was often the best choice, or a tie for

More details can be seen in Table 1. Note that the continuous attributes in the pima data set are discretized by MLC++ techniques (Kohavi et al, 1994).
