In this paper we introduce a new algorithm, called Ant-Miner-RegMA to tackle the regression problem using an archive-based pheromone model. Existing regression algorithms handle continuous attribute using a discretisation procedure, either in a preprocessing stage or during rule creation. Using an archive as a pheromone model, inspired by the ACO for Mixed-Variable (ACOMV), we eliminate the need for a discretisation procedure. We compare the proposed Ant-Miner-RegMA against Ant-Miner-Reg, an

Our results show that Ant-Miner-RegMA achieved a significant improvement in the relative root mean square error of the models created, overcoming the limitations of the dynamic discretisation procedure.
