An important decision support system component is machine learning/data mining. Classical machine learning methods implicitly assume that attributes of instances under classification do not change to acquire a positive classification. However, in many situations these instances represent people or organizations that can proactively seek to alter their characteristics to gain a positive classification. We argue that the learning mechanism should take this possible strategic learning into consideration during the induction process. We call this strategic learning. In this paper we define this concept, summarize related research, and present a number of future research areas.
