In Data mining classification rules are generated using some classification methods. One of the most common methods for rule generation is Decision tree which refers supervised learning. After generating classification rules we can apply those rules on unknown data and reach to the results. Artificial Neural Network is one kind of network that has the ability to learn and thereby acquire knowledge and make it available for use. But ANN gives results of only trained data. Unseen samples can be classified by ANN but nobody can understand how that classification was made. All training is inside the ANN in the form of weights. So we require to extract that training (knowledge) in form of rules. Classification rules are generated from trained ANN for multi-class dataset by Rule Extraction methods. So during the phase of testing classification rules give results of testing data.
