Incremental gene expression programming classifier with metagenes and data reduction
Joanna Jędrzejowicz , Piotr Jędrzejowicz
AbstractThe paper proposes an incremental Gene Expression Programming classifier. Its main features include using two-level ensemble consisting of base classifiers in form of genes and the upper-level classifier in the form of metagene. The approach enables us to deal with big datasets through controlling computation time using data reduction mechanisms. The user can control the number of attributes used to induce base classifiers as well as the number of base classifiers used to induce metagenes. To optimize the parameter setting phase, an approach based on the Orthogonal Experiment Design principles is proposed, allowing for statistical evaluation of the influence of different factors on the classifier performance. In addition, the algorithm is equipped with a simple mechanism for drift detection. A detailed description of the algorithm is followed by the extensive computational experiment. Its results validate the approach. Computational experiment results show that the proposed approach compares favourably with several state-of-the-art incremental classifiers.
