Dr. Gürol Canbek has conducted research in the field of machine learning and classification, with a focus on benchmarking robust performance metrics, developing new performance metrics and evaluation techniques. His work also emphasizes the importance of dataset quality and understanding the statistical distribution of features before proceeding with feature selection and model building. Dr. Canbek has distinguished performance measures vs. metrics, proposed a new instrument category named "performance indicators" and has developed a comprehensive review and knowledge representation of binary classification performance measures/metrics. Additionally, he has created a research and education tool for the calculation and representation of binary classification performance instruments. Overall, Dr. Canbek's research aims to provide a systematic approach to data profiling and classification performance evaluation/publication while eliminating potential biases.

This paper, which was presented at an IEEE conference, proposes a systematic ML process that is designed as a cycle with eight sub-processes that traverse introduced spaces (file, sample, class, feature, dataset, model, and finally metric spaces). The sub-process of dataset quality analysis/comparison is designed specifically as a quality control gateway. A case study of the Android mobile malware classification problem domain is used to explain the proposed process. [December 2021]
