Prediction of Bank Telemarketing with Co-training of Mixture-of-Experts and MLP
Utilization of financial data becomes one of the important issues for user adaptive marketing on the bank service. The marketing is conducted based on personal information with various facts that affect a success (clients agree to accept financial instrument). Personal information can be collected continuously anytime if clients want to agree to use own information in case of opening an account in bank, but labeling all the data needs to pay a high cost. In this paper, focusing on this characteristics of financial data, we present a global-local co-training (GLCT) algorithm to utilize labeled and unlabeled data to construct better prediction model. We performed experiments using real-world data from Portuguese bank. Experiments show that GLCT performs well regardless of the ratio of initial labeled data. Through the series of iterating experiments, we obtained better results on various aspects.
