Abstract: Machine Learning Algorithms for Classification use the Data Provided to Learn a Function that would discriminate between the classes. It is this learning that dictates how well a classifier is able to approximate the function, when presented with unseen data. Counterfeit banknotes are a scourge to every nation. Automated processes to quickly detect counterfeit notes with high accuracy are the essential need. We employ various classification and dimensionality reduction techniques to achieve perfect classification of the Banknote authentication dataset [1] using Artificial Neural Network, Support Vector Machine and K Nearest Neighbours classifiers.
