This paper investigates the feasibility and effectiveness of wavelet neural networks (WNNs) in the task of epileptic seizure detection. The electroencephalography (EEG) signals were first pre-processed using discrete wavelet transforms (DWTs). This was followed by the feature selection stage, where two sets of four representative summary statistics were(More)
Modification of the intensification and diversification approaches in the recently developed cuckoo search algorithm (CSA) is performed. The alteration involves the implementation of adaptive step size adjustment strategy, and thus enabling faster convergence to the global optimal solutions. The feasibility of the proposed algorithm is validated against(More)
Designing a wavelet neural network (WNN) needs to be done judiciously in attaining the optimal generalization performance. Its prediction competence relies highly on the initial value of translation vectors. However, there is no established solution in determining the appropriate initial value for the translation vectors at this moment. In this paper, we(More)
In clinical practice, diagnostic dilemmas are frequently encountered in discriminating the heterogeneous cancers into distinct types. This paper reports an improved machine learning approach based on the wavelet neural network (WNN), which associates a feature selection method, namely, the conditional T-test. It is used in the development of cancer(More)
Specifying the number and locations of the translation vectors for wavelet neural networks (WNNs) is of paramount significance as the quality of approximation may be drastically reduced if initialization of WNNs parameters was not done judiciously. In this paper, an enhanced fuzzy C-means algorithm, specifically the modified point symmetry–based fuzzy(More)
Feature selection is a very important aspect in the field of machine learning. It entails the search of an optimal subset from a very large data set with high dimensional feature space. Apart from eliminating redundant features and reducing computational cost, a good selection of feature also leads to higher prediction and classification accuracy. In this(More)
