  • Abstract

    Software Defect Prediction is a cost effective problem, in which the cost of majority class (Non defective) is low compared with the cost of minority class ( Defective). Learning from imbalanced data bias the classifier towards majority class. In this paper we are proposing a deep learning approach for classifying Imbalanced and Cost effective data. We applied Principle Component Analysis for feature selection and then constructed a classifier using Adaptive Neuro Fuzzy Inference System. The performance of the classifier was evaluated using AuC measures. We observed the performance of the classifier was improved compared with neural networks.
