In classification problems when multiple algorithms are applied to different benchmarks a difficult issue arises, i.e., how can we rank the algorithms? In machine learning, it is common to run the algorithms several times and then a statistic is calculated in terms of means and standard deviations. In order to compare the performance of the algorithms, it is very common to employ statistical tests. However, these tests may also present limitations, since they consider only the means and not the… Expand
