There are few studies in the literature to address the multi-objective multi-label feature selection for the classification of video data using evolutionary algorithms. Selecting the most appropriate subset of features is a significant problem while maintaining/improving the accuracy of the prediction results. This study proposes a framework of parallel multi-objective Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithms (NSGA-II) for exploring a Pareto set of non-dominated solutions. The subsets of non-dominated features are extracted and validated by multi-label classification techniques, Binary Relevance (BR), Classifier Chains (CC), Pruned Sets (PS), and Random k-Labelset (RAkEL). Base classifiers such as Support Vector Machines (SVM), J48-Decision Tree (J48), and Logistic Regression (LR) are performed in the classification phase of the algorithms. Comprehensive experiments are carried out with local feature descriptors extracted from two multi-label data sets, the well-known MIR-Flickr dataset and a Wireless Multimedia Sensor (WMS) dataset that we have generated from our video recordings. The prediction accuracy levels are improved by 6.36% and 25.7% for the MIR-Flickr and WMS datasets respectively while the number of features is significantly reduced. The results verify that the algorithms presented in this new framework outperform the state-of-the-art algorithms.


A hybrid swarm intelligence algorithm for simultaneous feature selection and clustering
Geren, Hasan; Özdemirel, Nur Evin; Department of Industrial Engineering (2022-6-20)
In this study, we address the feature selection and clustering problems by using a hybrid swarm intelligence approach. We assume that the number of clusters is known, clusters can be of any shape and have different densities, but there are no outliers or noise. The data set may have high dimensionality and redundant features. We propose a swarm intelligence algorithm, namely ACOVNS, which is a hybridization of Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and Variable Neighborhood Search (VNS). We utilize the ACO mechanism...
A marginalized multilevel model for bivariate longitudinal binary data
Inan, Gul; İlk Dağ, Özlem (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-06-01)
This study considers analysis of bivariate longitudinal binary data. We propose a model based on marginalized multilevel model framework. The proposed model consists of two levels such that the first level associates the marginal mean of responses with covariates through a logistic regression model and the second level includes subject/time specific random intercepts within a probit regression model. The covariance matrix of multiple correlated time-specific random intercepts for each subject is assumed to ...
Robust multiobjective evolutionary feature subset selection algorithm for binary classification using machine learning techniques
Deniz, Ayca; Kiziloz, Hakan Ezgi; Dokeroglu, Tansel; Coşar, Ahmet (2017-06-07)
This study investigates the success of a multiobjective genetic algorithm (GA) combined with state-of-the-art machine learning (ML) techniques for the feature subset selection (FSS) in binary classification problem (BCP). Recent studies have focused on improving the accuracy of BCP by including all of the features, neglecting to determine the best performing subset of features. However, for some problems, the number of features may reach thousands, which will cause too much computation power to be consumed ...

In Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, one of the crucial issues is the representation of the data. As the data become heterogeneous and large-scale, single kernel methods become insufficient to classify nonlinear data. The finite combinations of kernels are limited up to a finite choice. In order to overcome this discrepancy, we propose a novel method of "infinite" kernel combinations for learning problems with the help of infinite and semi-infinite programming regarding all elements in kernel space. Looking...
An algorithm to analyze stability of gene-expression patterns
Gebert, J; Latsch, M; Pickl, SW; Weber, Gerhard Wilhelm; Wunschiers, R (Elsevier BV, 2006-05-01)
Many problems in the field of computational biology consist of the analysis of so-called gene-expression data. The successful application of approximation and optimization techniques, dynamical systems, algorithms and the utilization of the underlying combinatorial structures lead to a better understanding in that field. For the concrete example of gene-expression data we extend an algorithm, which exploits discrete information. This is lying in extremal points of polyhedra, which grow step by step, up to a...
