This advanced machine learning algorithm is a Michigan-style learning classifier system (LCS) developed to specialize in classification, prediction, data mining, and knowledge discovery tasks. Michigan-style LCS algorithms constitute a unique class of algorithms that distribute learned patterns over a collaborative population of of individually interpretable IF:THEN rules, allowing them to flexibly and effectively describe complex and diverse problem spaces. ExSTraCS was primarily developed to address problems in epidemiological data mining to identify complex patterns relating predictive attributes in noisy datasets to disease phenotypes of interest. ExSTraCS combines a number of recent advancements into a single algorithmic platform. It can flexibly handle (1) discrete or continuous attributes, (2) missing data, (3) balanced or imbalanced datasets, and (4) binary or many classes. A complete users guide for ExSTraCS is included. Coded in Python 2.7.
This is a great project and I love to see it become a full application. So far my biggest issue is running a program for continuous data sets give me an error because con.numBins is not set in the constants code. I'm not sure what this value is supposed to be, but it is used only with continuous data so discrete data sets will not have an issue running. Thanks again
