Students' Orientation Using Machine Learning and Big Data
Keywords:Big data, Classification, Naïve Bayes, SVM, Random Forest Tree, Neural Net-work
Students' orientation in public institutions and choosing their academic paths or their appropriate specialization is important to students to continue their studies Easily in their school career. Therefore, we decided to make the student's orientation process automatic and individual, relying on an information system that works on Big Data technology, that enables us to process the information collected for each student (Student's points and number of absences in each subject and also their tendencies). Then we used the algorithms of machine learning, that enable us to give the appropriate specialization to each student. In this paper, we compared the accuracy and execution time of the following algorithms (Naïve Bayes, SVM, Random Forest Tree and Neural Network), where we found that Naïve Bayes is the best for this system.
