Decision trees are one of the most widely used classification techniques because of their easily understandable representation. In the literature, various methods have been developed to generate useful decision trees. ID3 and SLIQ algorithms are two of the important algorithms generating decision trees. Although they have been applied for various real life problems, they are inadequate to represent ambiguity and vagueness of human thinking and perception. In this study, fuzzy ID3 and fuzzy SLIQ algorithms, which generate fuzzy decision trees, are discussed as well as their enhanced versions. Their performances are also tested using simple training sets from the literature.
