The origins of herbal medicines are important for their treatment effect, which could be potentially distinguished by electronic nose system. As the odor fingerprint of herbal medicines from different origins can be tiny, the discrimination of origins can be much harder than that of different categories... Better feature extraction methods are significant for this task to be more accurately done, but there lacks systematic studies on different feature extraction methods. In this study, we classified different origins of three categories of herbal medicines with different feature extraction methods: manual feature extraction, mathematical transformation, deep learning algorithms. With 50 repetitive experiments with bootstrapping, we compared the effectiveness of the extractions with a two-layer neural network w/o dimensionality reduction methods (principal component analysis, linear discriminant analysis) as the three base classifiers. Compared with the conventional aggregated features, the Fast Fourier Transform method and our novel approach (longitudinal-information-in-a-line) showed an significant accuracy improvement(p < 0.05) on all 3 base classifiers and all three herbal medicine categories. Two of the deep learning algorithm we applied also showed partially significant improvement: one-dimensional convolution neural network(1D-CNN) and a novel graph pooling based framework - multivariate time pooling(MTPool). read more
