TITLE

GEML: A Grammatical Evolution, Machine Learning Approach to Multi-class Classification

ABSTRACT

In this paper, we propose a hybrid approach to solving multi-class problems which combines evolutionary computation with elements of traditional machine learning. The method, Grammatical Evolution Machine Learning (GEML) adapts machine learning concepts from decision tree learning and clustering methods and integrates these into a Grammatical Evolution framework. We investigate the effectiveness of GEML on several supervised, semi-supervised and unsupervised multi-class problems and demonstrate its competitive performance when compared with several well known machine learning algorithms. The GEML framework evolves human readable solutions which provide an explanation of the logic behind its classification decisions, offering a significant advantage over existing paradigms for unsupervised and semi-supervised learning. In addition we also examine the possibility of improving the performance of the algorithm through the application of several ensemble techniques.
