Efficient GA Based Techniques for Classification

  title={Efficient GA Based Techniques for Classification},
  author={Peter K. Sharpe and Robin P. Glover},
  journal={Applied Intelligence},
A common approach to evaluating competing models in a classification context is via accuracy on a test set or on cross-validation sets. However, this can be computationally costly when using genetic algorithms with large datasets and the benefits of performing a wide search are compromised by the fact that estimates of the generalization abilities of competing models are subject to noise. This paper shows that clear advantages can be gained by using samples of the test set when evaluating… CONTINUE READING
