This paper presents a Genetic Algorithm, called Olex-GA, for the induction of rule-based text classifiers of the form “classify document d under category c if t1 ∈ d or ... or tn ∈ d and not (tn+1 ∈ d or ... or tn+m ∈ d) holds”, where each ti is a term. Olex-GA relies on an efficient several-rules-per-individual binary representation and uses the F -measure… CONTINUE READING
