Decision tree induction is typically based on a top-down greedy algorithm that makes locally optimal decisions at each node. Due to the greedy and local nature of the decisions made at each node, there is considerable possibility of instances at the node being split along branches such that instances along some or all of the branches require a large number of additional nodes for classification. In this paper, we present a computationally efficient way of incorporating look-ahead into fuzzy decision tree induction. Our algorithm is based on establishing the decision at each internal node by jointly optimizing the node splitting criterion (information gain or gain ratio) and the classifiability of instances along each branch of the node. Simulations results confirm that the use of the proposed look-ahead method leads to smaller decision trees and as a consequence better test performance
