I've attended a few interviews for this very post and the few question that was asked in all of these interviews.

1. What are feature vectors?

A feature vector is an n-dimensional vector of numerical features that represent some object. In machine learning, feature vectors are used to represent numeric or symbolic characteristics, called features, of an object in a mathematical, easily analyzable way.

2. Steps in making decision tree

  • take the entire data set as input
  • analyze the split that maximizes the separation of classes
  • Apply the split to the input data
  • Re-apply steps 1 to 2 to the divided data.
  • Stop when you meet some stopping criteria.
  • This step is called pruning. Clean up the tree if you went too far doing splits.

Hope this helps!
