  • We discuss theoretical aspects of the product rule for classification problems in supervised machine learning for the case of combining classifiers. We show that (1) the product rule arises from the MAP classifier supposing equivalent priors and conditional independence given a class; (2) under some conditions, the product rule is equivalent to minimizing the sum of the squared distances to the respective centers of the classes related with different features, such distances being weighted by… CONTINUE READING
