E Chi merge selects the smallest value of chi 2.

In this problem we select one of the following as an attribute: So, when value is equal to 0, using difference as the standard of interval merging is inaccurate. Check these ChiMerge powerpoint slides that visualizes the above algorithm.

ChiMerge: Discretization of Numeric Attributes

Even if degree of freedom in is bigger thanbut because the difference of degree of freedom between and is very small, it is possible that the difference of is bigger than the difference of. Journal of Applied Mathematics. Similarity function of adjacent two intervalsis defined as In the formula 5is a condition parameter: In statistics, the asymptotic distribution of statistic with degrees of freedom is distribution with degrees of freedom, namely, distribution.

When condition attribute values of objects are the same and decision attribute value is not the same, the classified information of the decision table has definite inconsistency rate error ratewhere.

Approximate reasoning is an important research content of artificial intelligence domain [ 14 — 17 ]. To receive news and publication updates for Journal of Applied Mathematics, enter your email address in the box below.

It needs measuring similarity between the different pattern and the object. It should be merged. Besides, two important stipulations are given in the algorithm. In brief, interval similarity definition not only can inherit the logical aspects of statistic but also can resolve the problems about algorithms of the correlation of Chi2 algorithm, realizing equality.


The expected value is the frequency value that would be expected to occur by chance given the assumption of independence. Series of algorithms correlative to Chi2 algorithm based on probability statistics theory offer a new way of thinking to discretization of real value attributes. The two operations can reduce the influence of merge degree to other intervals or attributes, and the inconsistency rate of system cannot increase beforehand.

Discretizaiton find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: Comparison of distribution with different degrees of freedom.

Numeroc at Google Scholar Z. Such initialization may be the discretizaton starting point in terms of the CAIR criterion.

So it is unreasonable to merge first the adjacent two intervals with the maximal difference. Moreover, degree of freedom of adjacent two intervals with the greater number of classes is bigger. D For each pair of adjacent rows in the frequency table calculate e the expected frequency value for that combination from the product of row and column sums divided by the total number of occurrences in the two rows combined.

ChiMerge discretization algorithm

Now lets take the IRIS data set, obtained from http: This is an open access article distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution Licensewhich permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited.

Then, the difference between and is where. No chi 2 is calculated for the final interval because there is not one below it.

Abstract Discretization algorithm for real value attributes is of very important uses in many areas such as intelligence and machine learning. Thus, if extended Chi2 discretization algorithm was used, it is not accurate and unreasonable to merge first adjacent two intervals which have the maximal difference value. In formula 3under certain situations is not very accurate: Here is a couple of functions that handle the two ways of reading the file:.

We can see and get. Extended Chi2 algorithm is as shown in Algorithm 1 [ 1 ]. The discretizatioh for computing the value is where: This is easily achieved by taking the attribute value disvretization to be the lower bound of the interval and the next attribute value to be the upper bound of the interval. One thing to note about the below implementation is the use of LINQ to Objects and Lambda Expressions to filter out tuples that need numric be dropped and merged.


References [ 341112 ] are the algorithms of the correlation of Chi2 algorithm based on the statistics. Having the data ready in our hands, we can now proceed to implement the ChiSquare function which is basically an implementation of the formula: In fact, considering the relations of containing and being contained between two adjacent intervals, they still have the greater merged opportunity and it is unfair.

An Algorithm for Discretization of Real Value Attributes Based on Interval Similarity

But, because the number of each group of adjacent intervals is different, it is unreasonable to merely take as a difference measure standard.

When the number of some class increases two intervals both have this class, and are invariable, value of one of two intervals is invariable ; the numerator and the denominator of expansion to formula are increasing at the same time. But the method proposed in dhimerge paper is good. In regard to Auto and Iris datasets each of them has two classes class distribution difference of each adjacent two intervals is not big.

Then generate a set of distinct intervals. Given two intervals objectslet be a class label according to the th value in the first interval, and let be a class label according to the th value in the second interval. In particular promotion scope of Glass, Wine, and Machine datasets is very big.

Therefore, even if, we still have discretizzation situation: It initializes the discretization intervals using a maximum entropy discretization method.
