ChiMerge discretization algorithm

So it is unreasonable to merge discretizatioj the adjacent two intervals with the maximal difference. Kurgan and Cios have improved in the discretization criterion and attempted to cause class-attribute interdependence maximization [ 10 ]. Thus, if extended Chi2 discretization algorithm was used, it is not accurate and unreasonable to merge first adjacent two intervals which have the maximal nummeric value. For example see Table 1,and c are condition attributes and is decision attribute.

From Table 4we can see that under 1-V-1 classification method the predictive accuracy with SIM algorithm is higher than that of extended Chi2 viscretization and Boolean discretization algorithm except for Breast and Pima datasets.

At the same time, two important parameters condition parameter and tiny move parameter in the process of discretization and discrepancy extent of a number of attrbiutes two intervals are given in the form of function.

Meanwhile, discreted data is classified by multiclass classification method [ 23 — 26 ] of SVM. Email Subscription Enter your email address to subscribe to this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.


Continuous attributes need to be discretized in many algorithms such as rule extraction and tag sort, especially rough set theory in research of data mining. In this section we dsicretization a new discretization algorithm for real value attributes based on interval similarity the algorithm is called SIM for short. The chi 2 values are calculated for the revised frequency table, chi merge proceeds iteratively in this way merging two intervals at each stage until the chi 2 for the remaining pairs of intervals are greater than the threshold value and the number of intervals is less than the maximum number of intervals, hence no further merging of intervals is possible and the discretisation is complete.

The two operations can reduce the influence of merge degree to other intervals or attributes, and the inconsistency rate of system cannot increase beforehand. Regarding in Table 1. Based on the analysis to the drawback of the correlation of Chi2 algorithm, we propose the similarity function as follows. Finally, we are ready to implement the Chi-Merge algorithm.

If the hypothesis is confirmed the intervals are merged into a single interval, if not, they remain separated. It checks each pair of adjacent rows in order to determine if the class frequencies of the two intervals are significantly different.

But in fact, it is possibly unreasonable that they are first merged. From the computation with Table 1we get and inthen. Study of discretization algorithm of real value attributes operates an important effect for many aspects of computer application.

ChiMerge: Discretization of Numeric Attributes

It uses a user-specified number of intervals when discretizqtion the discretization intervals. The expected value is the frequency value that would be expected to occur by chance given the assumption of independence. Having the data ready in our hands, we can now attribhtes to implement the ChiSquare function which is basically an implementation of the formula: So you could probably that the code below will compile only using Visual Studio and.


That is the data set has not enough information of class. One last thing to do before we implement Chi-Merge algorithm is to setup the initial interval bounds and prepare them. Tay and Shen further improved the Chi2 algorithm and proposed the modified Chi2 algorithm in [ 4 ].

Yet, the difference of class distribution of adjacent two intervals which have the less number of classes is smaller and the corresponding value is smaller. Ionosphere and Wine datasets. We will perform data discretization for each of the four numerical attributes using the Chi-Merge method having the stopping criteria be: Huang has solved the above problem, but at the expense of very high-computational cost [ 9 ].

Let be a database, or an information table, and let be two arrays then their similar degree is defined as a mapping to the interval.

Model type is C-SVC. When the number of some class increases two intervals both have this class, and are invariable, value of one of two intervals is invariable ; the numerator and the denominator of expansion to formula are increasing at the same time.
