2015 : Klasifikasi Berbasis Gravitasi Data dan Probabilitas Posterior

Prof. Ir. Arif Djunaidy M.Sc., Ph.D.


The classification method based on data gravitation (DGC) is one of the new classification techniques that uses data gravitation as the criteria of the classification. In the case of DGC, an object is classified on the basis of the class that creates the largest gravitation in that object. However, the DGC method may cause inaccurate result when the training data being used suffer from the class imbalanced problem. This may be caused by the existence of the training data containing a class having excessively big mass that will in turn tend to classify an uknown object as a member of that class due to the high degree of the data gravitation produced, and vice versa. In this research, a modification to the DGC method is performed by constructing a classificaion method that is based on both the data gravitation and posterior probability (DGCPP). In DGCPP, the mass concept defined in the DGC method as the prior probability is replaced by the posterior probability. By using this modification, data gravitation calculation process is expected to produce more accurate results in compared to those produced by the DGC method. In addtion, by improving the data gravitation calculation, it is expected that the DGCPP method will produce more accurate classification results in compared to those produced by the DGC method for both normal dataset as well as dataset having class imbalanced problems. A thorough tests for evaluating the classification accuracy are performed using a ten-fold cross-validation method on several datasets containing both normal and imbalanced-class datasets. The results showed that DGCPP method produced positive average of …
