A Comparative Evaluation of Bayesian Networks Structure Learning Using Falcon Optimization Algorithm
Bayesian networks are analytical models that may represent probabilistic dependent connections among variables and are useful in machine learning for generating knowledge structure. Due to the vastness of the solution space, learning Bayesian network (BN) structures from data is an NP-hard problem. The score and search technique is one Bayesian Network structure learning strategy. In Bayesian network structure learning the Falcon Optimization Algorithm (FOA) is presented and evaluated by the authors. Inserting, Reversing, Moving, and Deleting, are used in the method to create the FOA for finding the best structural solution. The FOA algorithm is based on the falcon's searching technique during drought conditions. The suggested technique is compared to the score metric function of Pigeon Inspired search algorithm, Greedy Search, and Antlion optimization search algorithm. The performance of these techniques in terms of confusion matrices was further evaluated by the authors using a variety of benchmark data sets. The Falcon optimization algorithm outperforms the previous algorithms and generates higher scores and accuracy values, as evidenced by the results of our experiments.
