IFGAN: Missing Value Imputation using Feature-specific Generative Adversarial Networks

23 Dec 2020  ·  Wei Qiu, Yangsibo Huang, Quanzheng Li ·

Missing value imputation is a challenging and well-researched topic in data mining. In this paper, we propose IFGAN, a missing value imputation algorithm based on Feature-specific Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN)... Our idea is intuitive yet effective: a feature-specific generator is trained to impute missing values, while a discriminator is expected to distinguish the imputed values from observed ones. The proposed architecture is capable of handling different data types, data distributions, missing mechanisms, and missing rates. It also improves post-imputation analysis by preserving inter-feature correlations. We empirically show on several real-life datasets that IFGAN outperforms current state-of-the-art algorithm under various missing conditions. read more
