Seminar abstract


Learning from Imbalanced Data

Nitesh Chawla
Assistant Professor
Computer Science and Engineering Department, University of Notre Dame, USA

Abstract :

Recent years brought increased interest in applying data mining techniques to difficult "real-world" problems, many of which are characterized by imbalanced learning data, where at least one class is under-represented relative to others. Examples include (but are not limited to): fraud/intrusion detection, risk management, medical diagnosis/monitoring, bioinformatics, text categorization and personalization of information. The problem of imbalanced data is also often associated with asymmetric costs of misclassifying elements of different classes. In this talk, I will present our work on finding problems in, proposing solutions to, and performing analysis on imbalanced data.
