In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Alex A. Freitas mainly investigates Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Data mining, Pattern recognition and Classifier. Artificial intelligence is a component of his Statistical classification, Feature selection, Class, Decision tree and Naive Bayes classifier studies. Evolutionary algorithm, Bayesian network, Multi-label classification, Genetic programming and Interpretability are the primary areas of interest in his Machine learning study.

Alex A. Freitas usually deals with Evolutionary algorithm and limits it to topics linked to Rule induction and Set. His Data mining study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Longitudinal study. His Pattern recognition research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Genetic algorithm and Probabilistic logic.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A novel applicability domain technique for mapping predictive reliability across the chemical space of a QSAR: reliability-density neighbourhood (104 citations)
  • The CAFA challenge reports improved protein function prediction and new functional annotations for hundreds of genes through experimental screens (82 citations)
  • An extensive evaluation of seven machine learning methods for rainfall prediction in weather derivatives (60 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Machine learning
  • Statistics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Artificial intelligence, Machine learning, Feature selection, Pattern recognition and Classifier. His work on Model organism expands to the thematically related Artificial intelligence. He focuses mostly in the field of Machine learning, narrowing it down to topics relating to Gene ontology and, in certain cases, Directed acyclic graph.

He combines subjects such as Neighbourhood, Molecular descriptor, Data mining and Naive Bayes classifier with his study of Feature selection. His Decision tree study in the realm of Data mining connects with subjects such as sort. Within one scientific family, Alex A. Freitas focuses on topics pertaining to Genetic algorithm under Pattern recognition, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Classifier chains.
