Abstract: In this paper we present a study on the behaviour of some representative Bayesian Networks Classifiers (BNCs), when the dataset they are learned from presents imbalanced data, that is, there are far fewer cases labelled with a particular class value than with the other ones (assuming binary classification problems). This is a typical source of trouble in some datasets, and the development of more robust techniques is currently very important. In this study, we have selected a benchmark of 129 imbalanced datasets, and performed an analytical approach focusing on BNCs. Our results show good performance of these classifiers, that outperform decision trees (C4.5). Finally, an algorithm to improve the performance of any BNC is also given. We have carried out an experimentation where we show how the using of oversampling of the minority class to achieve the desired value for the imbalance ratio (IR), which is the division of the number of cases for the majority class by the cases of the min ority class. From this work we can conclude that BNCs show a very good performance for imbalanced datasets, and that our proposal enhance their results for those datasets that provided poor results. (More)
