FFTrees: An R package to create, visualise and use fast and frugal decision trees

    Fast and frugal decision trees seem to me to be the same as decision lists introduced by Rivest (1987).

    There are well known cases where decision lists face difficulty; for example they cannot represent the XOR function, however they are trained.

    Is there an rpubs post on this? The o up right now seems to be a dummy link: <https://rpubs.com/username/project>. Thanks!

    Great talk. FFTrees is a great package for creating decision trees that can be interpreted easily by others (without a computational background). I love the option to plot the ROC curve and compare the fast & frugal trees with models from other packages, and also make cost-informed decisions by including a vector of costs in the model. I can also see a lot of value in manually creating a tree, to compare prediction accuracy of models based on intuition to models based on statistics.
