Ensemble approaches to classification and regression have attracted a great deal of interest in recent years. These methods can be shown both theoretically and empirically to outperform single predictors on a wide range of tasks. One of the elements required for accurate prediction when using an ensemble is recognised to be error “diversity”. However, the exact meaning of this concept is not clear from the literature, particularly for classification tasks. In this paper we first review the… CONTINUE READING
