I am trying to create a prediction model by using a decision tree with Turicreate. While my problem does involve numbers, it also involves strings and ultimately I want it to return the string 'true/false'. Are Turicreate decision trees able to process strings as input and output?

I'm not familiar with the package, but the documentation suggests that strings as input will be handled internally by dummy-encoding (with a reference level). The linked section is for linear regression, but is linked to from the Advanced Features section of the decision tree page, so I assume that applies.
