The aim of this paper is to present three new aspects of KEEL: KEEL-dataset, a data set repository which includes the data set partitions in the KEEL format and shows some results of algorithms in these data sets; some guidelines for including new algorithms in KEEL, helping the researchers to make their methods easily accessible to other authors and to(More)
Experimental analysis of the performance of a proposed method is a crucial and necessary task in an investigation. In this paper, we focus on the use of nonparametric statistical inference for analyzing the results obtained in an experiment design in the field of computational intelligence. We present a case study which involves a set of techniques in(More)
Discretization is an essential preprocessing technique used in many knowledge discovery and data mining tasks. Its main goal is to transform a set of continuous attributes into discrete ones, by associating categorical values to intervals and thus transforming quantitative data into qualitative data. In this manner, symbolic data mining algorithms can be(More)
The experimental analysis on the performance of a proposed method is a crucial and necessary task to carry out in a research. This paper is focused on the statistical analysis of the results in the field of genetics-based machine Learning. It presents a study involving a set of techniques which can be used for doing a rigorous comparison among algorithms,(More)
Classification datasets often have an unequal class distribution among their examples. This problem is known as imbalanced classification. The Synthetic Minority Over-sampling Technique (SMOTE) is one of the most well-know data pre-processing methods to cope with it and tobalance thedifferentnumberof examples of eachclass.However, as recentworks claim,(More)
In real-life data, information is frequently lost in data mining, caused by the presence of missing values in attributes. Several schemes have been studied to overcome the drawbacks produced by missing values in data mining tasks; one of the most well known is based on preprocessing, formerly known as imputation. In this work, we focus on a classification(More)
The classification problem can be addressed by numerous techniques and algorithms which belong to different paradigms of machine learning. In this paper, we are interested in evolutionary algorithms, the so-called genetics-based machine learning algorithms. In particular, we will focus on evolutionary approaches that evolve a set of rules, i.e.,(More)
Traditional classifier learning algorithms build a unique classifier from the training data. Noisy data may deteriorate the performance of this classifier depending on the degree of sensitiveness to data corruptions of the learning method. In the literature, it is widely claimed that building several classifiers from noisy training data and combining their(More)
The presence of noise is common in any real-world dataset and may adversely affect the accuracy, construction time and complexity of the classifiers in this context. Traditionally, many algorithms have incorporated mechanisms to deal with noisy problems and reduce noise's effects on performance; they are called robust learners. The C4.5 crisp algorithm is a(More)
