Abstract:Many classi ers achieve high levels of accuracy but have limited applicability in real world situations because they do not lead to a greater understanding or insight into the way features in uence the classi cation. In areas such as health informatics a classi er that clearly identi es the in uences on classi cation can be used to direct research and formulate interventions. This research investigates the practical applications of Automated Weighted Sum, (AWSum), a classi er that provides accuracy comparable to other techniques whist providing insight into the data. This is achieved by calculating a weight for each feature value that represents its in uence on the class value. The merits of this approach in classi cation and insight are evaluated on a Cystic Fibrosis and Diabetes datasets with positive results.
