2.8 Selected real-world applications

   

This section lists a few recent real-world applications of decision trees. The aim is to give the reader a ``feel'' for the versatility and usefulness of decision tree methods for data exploration, and not to be useful for readers interested in finding the potential of tree classifiers in specific domains. Our coverage of applications is, by necessity, very limited. All the application papers cited below were published between 1993 and 1995 in refereed journals. We also restrict to application domains where the domain scientists tried to use decision trees, rather than where decision tree researchers tested their algorithm(s) on several application domains. The application areas are listed below in alphabetical order.
