Decision tree view explanation

Hi There,

How should i interpret the view of the decision learner. Let's take for example the first split. Wich of the leaves is the survivor and wich one is not? Is it correct that in every split there is one survivor and one side is not?

well usually both survive and nobody get's killed by a tree ;-)

the decision tree simply tries to divide into groups (or clusters) of similar patterns..

for example it is grouping restaurants into chinese and italian based on the occurence of the
word "pizza" in the comments and groups all pizza containing into TATAAA.. the italians..
and the non pizza occurence into chinese..
both survive.. one with pizza and the other with hmm..maybe spring rolls? ;-)
