Chapter 1 EVOLVING COEVOLUTIONARY CLASSIFIERS UNDER LARGE ATTRIBUTE SPACES

By John Doucette, Peter Lichodzijewski and Malcolm Heywood

Abstract

Keywords: Model-building under the supervised learning domain potentially face a dual learning problem of identifying both the parameters of the model and the subset of (domain) attributes necessary to support the model: or an embedded as opposed to wrapper or filter based design. Genetic Programming (GP) has always addressed this dual problem, however, further implicit assumptions are made which potentially increase the complexity of the resulting solutions. In this work we are specifically interested in the case of classification under very large attribute spaces. As such it might be expected that multiple independent/ overlapping attribute subspaces support the mapping to class labels; whereas GP approaches to classification generally assume a single binary classifier per class, forcing the model to provide a solution in terms of a single attribute subspace and single mapping to class labels. Supporting the more general goal is considered as a requirement for identifying a ‘team ’ of classifiers with non-overlappin
