A classification technique (or classifier) is a systematic approach used in building classification models from an input data set. Some examples include decision tree classifier, rule based classifiers, neural networks, support vector machines and naive Bayes classifiers. Each technique employs a learning algorithm to identify a model that best fits the relationships between the attribute set and the class label of the input data. The model generated by the learning algorithm should both fit…

The random forest was used to develop a classification model that could be applied in predicting which of the insurance policies would likely to be chosen by the customers, and was compared to several data mining techniques.


Robust Bayes classifiers
Mining needle in a haystack: classifying rare classes via two-phase rule induction
This paper designs various synthetic data models to identify and analyze the situations in which two state-of-the-art methods, RIPPER and C4.5 rules, either fail to learn a model or learn a very poor model, and learns a model with significantly better recall and precision levels.
An Analysis of Bayesian Classifiers
An average-case analysis of the Bayesian classifier, a simple induction algorithm that fares remarkably well on many learning tasks, and explores the behavioral implications of the analysis by presenting predicted learning curves for artificial domains.
MetaCost: a general method for making classifiers cost-sensitive
A principled method for making an arbitrary classifier cost-sensitive by wrapping a cost-minimizing procedure around it is proposed, called MetaCost, which treats the underlying classifier as a black box, requiring no knowledge of its functioning or change to it.

This major new edition features many topics not covered in the original, including graphical models, random forests, ensemble methods, least angle regression and path algorithms for the lasso, non-negative matrix factorization, and spectral clustering.
On the Optimality of the Simple Bayesian Classifier under Zero-One Loss
The Bayesian classifier is shown to be optimal for learning conjunctions and disjunctions, even though they violate the independence assumption, and will often outperform more powerful classifiers for common training set sizes and numbers of attributes, even if its bias is a priori much less appropriate to the domain.

On most datasets studied, the best of very simple rules that classify examples on the basis of a single attribute is as accurate as the rules induced by the majority of machine learning systems.

A wide variety of point-metrics are put into a common analytical context defined by the recall and precision of the target rare class, which enables us to compare various metrics in an objective, domain-independent manner.
