There exists some news obviously classified into incorrect categories on Chinese webpage portals. This phenomenon is owing mainly the difficulty in automatically classifying Chinese news and the fact that news appearing on webpage portals is retrieved from numerous media sources. This paper integrates genetic algorithms and multiclass support vector machine classifiers to construct an automated classification error detection approach for Chinese news classification. A genetic algorithm is utilized to select four feature thresholds used to obtain representative features/words of each class.
