An Ant Colony Based System for Data Mining : Applications to Medical Data

  title={An Ant Colony Based System for Data Mining : Applications to Medical Data},
  author={Rafael S. Parpinelli and Heitor Silv{\'e}rio Lopes and Alex Alves Freitas},
This work describes an algorithm for rule discovery in databases called AntMiner. The objective of the algorithm is the extraction of classification rules to be applied to unseen data as a decision aid. The algorithm used to discover such rules is inspired in the behavior of a real ant colony, as well as some concepts of information theory and data mining. AntMiner was applied to medical databases to obtain classification rules.
