**Machine Learning Classic: Parsimonious Binary Classification Trees**- Jun 14, 2016.

Get your hands on a classic technical report outlining a three-step method of construction binary decision trees for multiple classification problems.**Statistical Modeling: The Two Cultures, by Leo Breiman**- Nov 28, 2013.

There are two cultures in the use of statistical modeling to reach conclusions from data. One assumes that the data are generated by a given stochastic data model. The other uses algorithmic models and treats the data mechanism as unknown - read the full paper.
