Convolutional Neural Networks and Deep Belief Networks for Analysing Imbalanced Class Issue in Handwritten Dataset

A'inur A'fifah Amri, Amelia Ritahani Ismail, Abdullah Ahmad Zarir


Imbalanced class is one of the trials in classifying materials of big data. Data disparity produces a biased output of a model regardless how recent the technology is. However, deep learning algorithms such as convolutional neural networks and deep belief networks have proven to provide promising results in many research domains, especially in image processing as well as time series forecasting, intrusion detection, and classification. Therefore, this paper will investigate the effect of imbalanced data discrepancy of classes in MNIST handwritten dataset using convolutional neural networks and deep belief networks. Based on the experiment conducted, the results show that although the algorithm is suitable for multiple domains and have shown stability, the imbalanced distribution of data still able to affect the overall performance of the models.
