Abstract

A modal symbolic classifier for interval data is presented. The proposed method needs a previous pre-processing step to transform interval symbolic data into modal symbolic data. The presented classifier has then as input a set of vectors of weights. In the learning step, each group is also described by a vector of weight distributions obtained through a generalization tool. The allocation step uses the squared Euclidean distance to compare two modal descriptions. To show the usefulness of this method, examples with synthetic symbolic data sets are considered.
