Classification is a data mining (machine learning) technique and a model finding process that is used for assigning the data into different classes according to specific constrains. In other words the authors can say that classification is used to predict group membership for data instances. There are several major kinds of classification algorithms including genetic algorithm C4.5, Naive Bayes, SVM, KNN, decision tree, neural network and CART. This paper is to provide a detailed review of two classification techniques and its applications in various emerging fields.
