There are many classification algorithms in machine learning, which can be divided into two major functional categories: supervised learning and unsupervised learning. Among them, there are more supervised learning classification algorithms. Common classification algorithms include decision tree, K-nearest neighbor method, naive Bayes method, support vector machine, neural network, integration method, etc.
Decision tree is a rule-based supervised learning method. It expresses the decision-making process in a tree structure. It can process data containing continuous attributes and discrete attributes, and learn hidden rules from the data. The advantage is that it is easy to understand, easy to implement, and highly accurate. It is suitable for the situation where the data set has few features and small amount of data.
K-nearest neighbor method is a kind of case based supervised learning method. The idea is that if most of the K nearest samples of a sample belong to a certain category, then the sample also belongs to that particular category. The advantage is that it can reflect complex correlations between data and is easy to understand and implement; Applicable to the data set features, data volume is not large.
Naive Bayes method is a supervised learning method based on probability theory. Its idea is to assume that features are independent of each other, and judge which feature a sample belongs to according to the features and their corresponding conditional probabilities. The advantage is that it can process multi-feature data and perform well for small-scale data. It is applicable to the case that features are independent, but the correlation between features is not strong.
Support vector machine is a supervised learning method based on function interval and geometric interval. Its idea is to find an optimal segmentation hyperplane to separate samples, that is, to distinguish positive and negative samples by a function interval or geometric interval maximization. The advantage is that it performs well in the case of higher dimensional characteristics; It is suitable for situations where there is a strong correlation between features, but it is not possible to go through all possible cases.
Neural network is a supervised learning method based on artificial neuron model. Its idea is to correct the weight and threshold through error back propagation. The advantage is that it can deal with a lot of characteristic information and complex correlation. It is suitable for the case that the correlation between the features is strong, but cannot be expressed in a general way.
integration method is a supervised learning method that integrates multiple weak classiclassiers into one strong classifier. Common integration methods include Bagging, Adaboost, random forest, GBDT, XGBoost, etc. The advantage is that it can integrate the weak classifier into the strong classifier, so that the accuracy of classification is greatly improved. It is suitable for the case that the correlation between the features is strong, but cannot be expressed in a general way.
In a word, each classification algorithm has its own advantages and disadvantages, and different classification methods should be selected according to the actual application scenarios.
