Title : Distributed algorithms for prototype selection and multi-label classification

Date : Friday, September 06, 2019

Time : 4:00 PM

Venue : CSA Seminar Hall (Room No. 254, First Floor)


The Modified Condensed Nearest Neighbour (MCNN) algorithm is an algorithm for prototype selection which gives  good performance but the time requirement is much higher than algorithms like Condensed Nearest Neighbour (CNN) algorithm. A distributed approach called Parallel MCNN (pMCNN) is proposed which cuts down the time required  drastically. pMCNN has been used for prototype selection on large and streaming data and results are presented which shows good performance with saving in time.

The second part of the talk describes an algorithm for multilabel classification for discrete data. Two improvements are  carried out to reduce the complexity. The first is feature selection which reduces both space and time complexity. The second is to use a distributed approach to this problem. Results show good performance as compared to standard  techniques like ML-KNN (Multi label kNN). The use of feature selection and the distributed approach give saving in the time required which is helpful when the data sizes are large.
