Abstract

This paper proposes a constrained-syntax genetic programming (GP) algorithm-for discovering classification rules in medical data sets. The proposed GP contains several syntactic constraints to be enforced by the system using a disjunctive normal form representation, so that individuals represent valid rule sets that are easy to interpret. The GP is compared with C4.5 in a real-world medical data set. This data set represents a difficult classification problem, and a new preprocessing method was devised for mining the data.
