Abstract: The analysis of Big Data is a data mining discipline in which large quantity of unstructured data is analysed which can be challenging to store and also to retrieve efficiently. The classification of plants is based on the identification of leaf that has a very broad application in both agriculture and medicine. In this work, a method which is computerized is used to recognize a plant leaf based on images is proposed. The proposed method extracts features from the image and these are used for classifying the plant leaf. The process of deciding on the subset for all relevant features to be used in the construction of a system is known as feature selection. The Group Search Optimizer (GSO) is a nature-inspired algorithm that possesses all the qualities used effectively to solve feature selection tasks. In this work, there is a GSO-based algorithm of feature selection along with fuzzy logic and the classifier of a Neural Network (NN) is proposed. The results of the experiment prove the proposed method (GSO-NN) was able to achieve a better level of performance compared to the other methods.
