Abstract: Learning of class imbalanced data becomes a challenging issue in the machine learning community as all classification algorithms are designed to work for balanced datasets. Several methods are available to tackle this issue, among which the resampling techniques- undersampling and oversampling are more flexible and versatile. This paper introduces a new concept for undersampling based on Center of Gravity principle which helps to reduce the excess instances of majority class. This work is suited for binary class problems. The proposed technique –CoGBUS- overcomes the class imbalance problem and brings best results in the study. We take F-Score, GMean and ROC for the performance evaluation of the method.
