Abstract: There exist several methods for transforming decision trees to neural networks. These methods typically construct the networks by directly mapping decision nodes or rules to the neural units. As a result, the networks constructed are often larger than necessary. This article describes a pruning-based method for mapping decision trees to neural networks, which can compress the network by removing unimportant and redundant units and connections. In addition, equivalent decision trees extracted from the pruned networks are simpler than those induced by well-known algorithms such as ID3 and C4.5.
