Recently, multi-instance classification algorithm BP-MIP and multi-instance regression algorithm BP-MIR both based on neural networks have been proposed. In this paper, neural network ensemble techniques are introduced to solve multi-instance learning problems, where BP-MIP ensemble and BP-MIR ensemble are constructed respectively. Experiments on benchmark and artificial data sets show that ensembles of multi-instance neural networks are superior to single multi-instance neural networks in… CONTINUE READING
