Title: Induction over large data bases
Author: Quinlan, J. R.

Abstract: Techniques for discovering rules by induction from large
collections of instances are developed. These are based on an
iterative scheme for dividing the instances into two sets,
only one of which needs to be randomly accessible. These
techniques have made it possible to discover complex rules
from data bases containing many thousands of instances.
Results of several experiments using them are reported.
