Abstract

In this paper, we experiment with a combination of innovative approaches to rule induction to encourage the production of interesting sets of classification rules. These include multi-objective metaheuristics to induce the rules; measures of rule dissimilarity to encourage the production of dissimilar rules; and rule clustering algorithms to evaluate the results obtained. Our previous implementation of NSGA-II for rule induction produces a set of cc-optimal rules (coverage-confidence optimal rules). Among the set of rules produced there may be rules that are very similar. We explore the concept of rule similarity and experiment with a number of modifications of the crowding distance to increasing the diversity of the partial classification rules produced by the multi-objective algorithm.
