It is often difficult to make accurate predictions given uncertain and noisy data for classification. Unfortunately, most real-world problems have to deal with such imperfect data. This paper presents a new model for fuzzy classification by integrating fuzzy classifiers with decision trees. In this approach, a fuzzy classification tree is constructed from the training data set. Instead of defining a specific class for a given instance, the proposed fuzzy classification scheme computes its degree of possibility for each class. The performance of the system is evaluated by empirically compared with a standard decision tree classifier C4.5 on several benchmark data sets the UCI machine learning repository.
