Solutions to the accuracy paradox[edit]

  • The correct solution to the 'paradox' is to think about the information gained by using the model instead of the accuracy. See Information_gain_in_decision_trees for an example of how to measure the information (conditional entropy). This concept worked out for the example currently on the page would add value to this article — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bscan (talkcontribs) 19:28, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
