      Description

      Is there any plan to implement ID3 and C4.5 algorithms in Mahout? I am an undergrad student who's working on Mahout as part of my senior year project. I plan to implement decision tree learning as part of my project and was wondering if it is a good enough idea to incorporate it into the mainstream application.

      Regards.

        You can refer to this article from Google: http://www.bayardo.org/ps/vldb2009.pdf
        It is about both decision tree and regression tree learning.

        I think the priority of decision tree should be high since it is very common-used.

        There is already an implementation of Random Decision Forests where you can plug your own Tree building Algorithm. If you want to add ID3 or C4.5 to Mahout I will help you understand what parts of the code you should implement.

        Only marking this "WontFix" since there is no apparent momentum in a long time to work on it. In principle of course it's open for anyone to run with this later.

        Hi All,
        Can i start working on the implementation of ID3 and C4.5 algorithms?Anyone started working on it.?If not please do reply.
        Thanks
