Talk by Miguel Á. Carreira-Perpiñán: A new way to train decision trees: tree alternating optimization (TAO)

Decision trees with hard decision nodes stand apart from other machine
learning models in their interpretability, fast inference and
automatic feature selection -- in addition to their ability to handle
naturally nonlinear data, multiclass classification and regression,
discontinuous predictor functions, and discrete input features. This
has made decision trees widespread in certain practical applications
for decades, in spite of the fact that their predictive accuracy is
generally considered inferior to that of other models.
