What is machine learning: the ID3 Classifier

The ID3 - or ID3 (Iterative Dichotomiser 3) - is a supervised classifier based on decision tree learning methodology. The ID3 classifier generates a decision tree from a set of data (the training data) which can be used to classify new data.

Artificial Intelligence: Hidden Markov Model Classifiers and RADAR Objects Classification by Machine Learning 2/2

In the first part of this series, we introduced the general concepts needed for understanding the Hidden Markov Models Classifiers. Namely: Bayesian Logic, The concept of Bayesian Classifiers and Bayesian networks. All these notions are now grouped to form a new type of classifier which can accurately model and classify time-series data such as the RADAR data.
