Constructive Induction: Covering Attribute Spectrum

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Inductive algorithms rely strongly on their representational biases. Representational inadequacy can be mitigated by constructive induction. This chapter introduces several important issues for constructive induction and describes a new multi-strategy constructive induction algorithm (GALA2.0) which is independent of the learning algorithm. Unlike most previous research on constructive induction, our methods are designed as a preprocessing step before standard machine learning algorithms are applied. We present the results which demonstrate the effectiveness of GALA2.0 on real domains for two different learners: C4.5 and backpropagation.
