—With the continuous expansion of data availability in many large-scale, complex, and networked systems, such as surveillance, security, Internet, and finance, it becomes critical to advance the fundamental understanding of knowledge discovery and analysis from raw data to support decision-making processes. Although existing knowledge discovery and data(More)
—This paper presents a novel adaptive synthetic (ADASYN) sampling approach for learning from imbalanced data sets. The essential idea of ADASYN is to use a weighted distribution for different minority class examples according to their level of difficulty in learning, where more synthetic data is generated for minority class examples that are harder to learn(More)
—This paper proposed a novel approach for the Power Quality (PQ) disturbances classification based on the wavelet transform and self organizing learning array (SOLAR) system. Wavelet transform is utilized to extract feature vectors for various PQ disturbances based on the multiresolution analysis (MRA). These feature vectors then are applied to a SOLAR(More)
We propose a new classifier combination method, the signal strength-based combining (SSC) approach, to combine the outputs of multiple classifiers to support the decision-making process in classification tasks. As ensemble learning methods have attracted growing attention from both academia and industry recently, it is critical to understand the fundamental(More)
—Sparse representation, which uses dictionary atoms to reconstruct input vectors, has been studied intensively in recent years. A proper dictionary is a key for the success of sparse representation. In this paper, an active dictionary learning (ADL) method is introduced, in which classification error and reconstruction error are considered as the active(More)
Difficulties of learning from nonstationary data stream are generally twofold. First, dynamically structured learning framework is required to catch up with the evolution of unstable class concepts, i.e., concept drifts. Second, imbalanced class distribution over data stream demands a mechanism to intensify the underrepresented class concepts for improved(More)
Recent years have witnessed an incredibly increasing interest in the topic of incremental learning. Unlike conventional machine learning situations, data flow targeted by incremental learning becomes available continuously over time. Accordingly, it is desirable to be able to abandon the traditional assumption of the availability of representative training(More)
Temporal sequence learning is one of the most critical components for human intelligence. In this paper, a novel hierarchical structure for complex temporal sequence learning is proposed. Hierarchical organization, a prediction mechanism, and one-shot learning characterize the model. In the lowest level of the hierarchy, we use a modified Hebbian learning(More)
