Classifying dynamic behavioural based events, for example human behaviour profile, is a non-trivial task. In this paper, we propose an AI-based criteria-matching with classification algorithm which can be used to classify preference based decision outcome. The proposed algorithm is mathematically justified and with more practical benefits than a conventional multivariate discriminant analysis algorithm which is widely used for prediction tasks. Real world (Singapore) diamond dataset test results revealed the practical usefulness of our proposed algorithm to diamond sellers in Singapore.
