Maize Expert System
Computer Science & Engineering An International Journal
Machine learning  is concerned with the design and development of algorithms that allow computers to evolve intelligent behaviors based on empirical data. Weak learner is a learning algorithm with accuracy less than 50%. Adaptive Boosting (Ada-Boost) is a machine learning algorithm may be used to increase accuracy for any weak learning algorithm. This can be achieved by running it on a given weak learner several times, slightly alters data and combines the hypotheses. In this paper,
... his paper, Ada-Boost algorithm is used to increase the accuracy of the weak learner Naïve-Bayesian classifier. The Ada-Boost algorithm iteratively works on the Naïve-Bayesian classifier with normalized weights and it classifies the given input into different classes with some attributes. Maize Expert System is developed to identify the diseases of Maize crop using Ada-Boost algorithm logic as inference mechanism. A separate user interface for the Maize expert system consisting of three different interfaces namely, End-user/farmer, Expert and Admin are presented here. End-user/farmer module may be used for identifying the diseases for the symptoms entered by the farmer. Expert module may be used for adding rules and questions to data set by a domain expert. Admin module may be used for maintenance of the system.
