Learning is the ability to improve one's behaviour based on experience and represents an essential element of computational intelligence. Decision trees are a simple yet successful technique for supervised classification learning. This tool demonstrates how to build a decision tree using a training data set and then use the tree to classify unseen examples in a test data set.

Fundamentally, they saw the war as a struggle between democracy and barbarism. Similar statements and speeches--as well as more coercive measures--gradually captured the public discourse.
