Preprocessing-based Approaches for Imbalanced Classification (2020 - )

In classification, class imbalance is a factor that degrades the classification performance of many classification methods. Resampling is one widely accepted approach to the class imbalance; however, it still suffers from an insufficient data space, which also degrades performance. To overcome this, in this paper, an undersampling-based imbalanced classification framework, MMEnsemble, is proposed that incorporates metric learning into a multi-ratio undersampling-based ensemble. This framework also overcomes a problem with determining the appropriate sampling ratio in the multi-ratio ensemble method. It was evaluated by using 12 real-world datasets. It outperformed the state-of-the-art approaches of metric learning, undersampling, and oversampling in recall and ROC-AUC, and it performed comparably with them in terms of Gmean and F-measure metrics.

Faceted Search for Semi-structured Data (2009 - 2015)

Semi-structured data such as XML data have been used in various situations in order to reuse information not only in the services but also external applications. Utilizing semi-structured data is an important challenge. This research especially focuses on the exploration over semi-structured data. Faceted search is one of the promising exploratory search methods, therefore, this research applies faceted search to semi-structured data. In order to construct a faceted search system, this research works on four directions: (1) a framework to construct a faceted search system over XML data which is a tree-structured semi-structured data, (2) the extended framework for graph-structured semi-structured data, (3) an automation scheme for extracting necessary information, and (4) utilization of textual contents in semi-structured data.
