I am working on a breast cancer dataset (http://kdd.org/kdd-cup/view/kdd-cup-2008). I need to perform classification on the data using C4.5 algorithm, after doing any necessary pre-processing.
A section of the report that I have to write is "benchmark models" and I have no idea what that means. I googled the term and it doesn't seem to be something well defined in data mining. Any idea what that means?
