Autmatic Parameter Selection by Minimizing Estimated Error

  title={Autmatic Parameter Selection by Minimizing Estimated Error},
  author={Ron Kohavi and George H. John},
We address the problem of nding the parameter settings that will result in optimal performance of a given learning algorithm using a particular dataset as training data. We describe a \wrapper" method, considering determination of the best parameters as a discrete function optimization problem. The method uses bestrst search and crossvalidation to wrap around the basic induction algorithm: the search explores the space of parameter values, running the basic algorithm many times on training and… CONTINUE READING
