Epilepsy is one of the most common mental disorders in the world, affecting 65 million people. The prevalence in Arab countries of Epilepsy is estimated at 174 per 100,000 individuals, and in Saudi Arabia is 6.54 per 1,000 individuals. Epilepsy seizures have different types, and each patient needs to have a treatment plan according to the seizure type. Hence, accurate classification of seizure type is an essential part of diagnosing and treating epileptic patients. In this paper, features based on fast Fourier transform from EEG montages are used to classify different types of seizures. Since the distribution of classes is not uniform and the dataset suffers from severe imbalance. Various algorithms are used to under-sample the majority class and over-sample the minority classes. Random forest classifier produced classification accuracy of 96% to differentiate three types of seizures from the healthy EEG reading.
