      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.

        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

        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.

        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.

        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.
