—This paper describes a simulated annealing based multiobjective optimization algorithm that incorporates the concept of archive in order to provide a set of tradeoff solutions for the problem under consideration. To determine the acceptance probability of a new solution visa -vis the current solution, an elaborate procedure is followed that takes into(More)
In this paper, an evolutionary clustering technique is described that uses a new point symmetry-based distance measure. The algorithm is therefore able to detect both convex and non-convex clusters. Kd-tree based nearest neighbor search is used to reduce the complexity of finding the closest symmetric point. Adaptive mutation and crossover probabilities are(More)
Plagiarism denotes the act of copying someone else's idea (or, works) and claiming it as his/her own. Plagiarism detection is the procedure to detect the texts of a given document which are plagiarized, i.e. copied from from some other documents. Potential challenges are due to the facts that plagiarists often obfuscate the copied texts; might shuffle,(More)
In this paper, the concept of finding an appropriate classifier ensemble for named entity recognition is posed as a multiobjective optimization (MOO) problem. Our underlying assumption is that instead of searching for the best-fitting feature set for a particular classifier, ensembling of several classifiers those are trained using different feature(More)
In this paper, we propose a differential evolution (DE) based two-stage evolutionary approach for named entity recognition (NER). The first stage concerns with the problem of relevant feature selection for NER within the frameworks of two popular machine learning algorithms, namely Conditional Random Field (CRF) and Support Vector Machine (SVM). The(More)
In this paper, we propose classifier ensemble selection for Named Entity Recognition (NER) as a single objective optimization problem. Thereafter, we develop a method based on genetic algorithm (GA) to solve this problem. Our underlying assumption is that rather than searching for the best feature set for a particular classifier, ensembling of several(More)
