Rule induction is an area of machine learning in which formal rules are extracted from a set of observations. The rules extracted may represent a full scientific model of the data, or merely represent local patterns in the data.
Some major rule induction paradigms are:
- Association rule learning algorithms (e.g., Agrawal)
- Decision rule algorithms (e.g., Quinlan 1987)
- Hypothesis testing algorithms (e.g., RULEX)
- Horn clause induction
- Version spaces
- Rough set rules
- Inductive Logic Programming
- Boolean decomposition (Feldman)
