  • Background: Building effort estimators requires the training data. How can we find that data? It is tempting to cross the boundaries of development type, location, language, application and hardware to use existing datasets of other organizations. However, prior results caution that using such cross data may not be useful. Aim: We test two conjectures: (1) instance selection can automatically prune irrelevant instances and (2) retrieval from the remaining examples is useful for effort… CONTINUE READING
