Abstract: Imbalanced data classification problems endeavor to find a dependent variable in a skewed data distribution. Imbalanced data classification problems present in many application areas like, medical disease diagnosis, risk management, fault-detection, etc. It is a challenging problem in the field of machine learning and data mining. In this paper, K-Means cluster based oversampling algorithm is proposed to solve the imbalanced data classification problem. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm outperforms the existing oversampling algorithms of previous studies.
