Salford Systems, CARTData-mining software developer and consultant Salford Systems, San Diego, has introduced its CART classification and registration-tree software. The software can produce classification and prediction models for such applications as profiling best customers, targeting direct mailings, detecting telecommunications and credit-card fraud and managing credit risk.
CART can be used as a data-mining system or as a companion tool to extend the processing capabilities for neural networks and other data-mining systems. Its features include multiple automatic self-validation procedures; adjustable misclassification penalties; intelligent surrogates for missing values; eight choices for tree-growing criteria; multiple-tree, committee-of-expert methods or bootstrap aggregation; and a programming language with flow control for on-the-fly data manipulation.
