Robust Cutpoints in the Logical Analysis of Numerical Data

(2010) Technical Report. RUTCOR, Rutgers University, New Jersey.


Techniques for the logical analysis of binary data have successfully been applied to non-binary data which has been `binarized' by means of cutpoints; see~\cite{LAND,ILAD}. In this paper, we analyse the predictive performance of such techniques and, in particular, we derive generalization error bounds that depend on how `robust' the cutpoints are.
