The way people learn will play an essential role in the sustainable development of the educational system for the future. Utilizing technology in the age of information and incorporating it into how people learn can produce better learners. Implicit learning is a type of learning of the underlying rules without consciously seeking or understanding the rules; it is commonly seen in small children while learning how to speak their native language without learning grammar. This research aims to introduce a processing system that can systematically identify the relationship between implicit learning events and their Encephalogram (EEG) signal characteristics. This study converted the EEG signal from participants while performing cognitive task experiments into Multiscale Entropy (MSE) data. Using MSE data from different frequency bands and channels as features, the system explored a wide range of classifiers and observed their performance to see how they classified the features related to participants’ performance. The Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) method was used for feature selection to improve the process to make the system more efficient. The results showed that the system could correctly identify the differences between participants’ performance using MSE data and the ABC method with 95% confidence.
