Selecting among rules induced from a hurricane database

John A. Major, John J. Mangano
1995 Journal of Intelligent Information Systems  
For example, we applied a commercial tool (IXL tin) to a 1,819 record tropical storm database, yielding 161 rules.  ...  Applying the strategy to the induced rulebase yielded 10 "genuinely interesting" rules.  ...  Phase 2: Identify technically Interesting rules Technically interesting (TI) rules are selected among PI rules according to a recursively defined principle based on the simplicity and statistical significance  ...

Another move toward the minimum consistent subset: a tabu search approach to the condensed nearest neighbor rule

V. Cerveron, F.J. Ferri
2001 IEEE Transactions on Systems Man and Cybernetics Part B (Cybernetics)  
This paper presents a new approach to the selection of prototypes for the nearest neighbor rule which aims at obtaining an optimal or close-to-optimal solution.  ...  The results obtained suggest that the tabu search condensing algorithm offers a very good tradeoff between computational burden and the optimality of the prototypes selected.  ...  Among these approaches, prototype selection (PS) techniques aim at obtaining a convenient set of prototypes from an initially given set in such a way that the plain 1-NN rule using these selected (and  ...
