This work proposes an algorithm for
data mining
called AntMiner (Ant Colonybased Data Miner). The goal of AntMiner is to extract
classification rules
from data. The algorithm is inspired by both research on the behavior of real ant colonies and some
data mining
concepts and principles. We compare the performance of AntMiner with CN2, a wellknown
data mining algorithm
for classification, in six
public domain
data sets. The results provide evidence that: (a) AntMiner is competitive with CN2 with respect to predictive accuracy; and (b) The rule lists discovered by AntMiner are considerably simpler (smaller) than those discovered by CN2.
