A Particle Swarm Data Miner



This paper describes the implementation of Data Mining
tasks using Particle Swarm Optimisers. The object of our research has
been to apply such algorithms to classi¯cation rule discovery. Results,
concerning accuracy and speed performance, were empirically compared
with another evolutionary algorithm, namely a Genetic Algorithm and
with J48 - a Java implementation of C4.5. The data sets used for ex-
perimental testing have already been widely used and proven reliable
for testing other Data Mining algorithms. The obtained results seem to
indicate that Particle Swarm Optimisers are competitive with other evo-
lutionary techniques, and could come to be successfully applied to more
demanding problem domains.
