Chidozie Mgbemena, David Bell, Nurul Saleh
2016 2016 IEEE/ACM 20th International Symposium on Distributed Simulation and Real Time Applications (DS-RT)  
A dataset provided by a mobile network operator is utilised to automate decision trees and agent based models.  ...  The most popular churn modeling techniques were adopted in order to automate the development of models, from decision trees, and subsequently explore customer churn scenarios.  ...  The CADET approach for conducting agent based modelling is a novel approach for building agent based models using decision trees.  ...
