—Algorithms for data classification are normally at
their high performance when the dataset has good balance in
which the number of data instances in each class is
approximately equal. But when the dataset is imbalanced, the
classification model tends to bias toward the majority class. The
goal of imbalanced data classification is how to improve the
performance of a model to better recognize data from minority
class, especially when minority is more interesting than the
majority data. In this research, we propose technique for
balancing data with hybrid resampling techniques and then
perform parameter optimization with restarting genetic
algorithm. The optimized parameters are for support vector
machine to induce efficient model for recognizing data in
minority class, whereas maintaining overall accuracy. The
experimental results show that the proposed technique has high
performance than others.
