This is the second of two papers that use off-training set (OTS) error to investigate the assumption-free relationship between learning algorithms. The first paper discusses a particular set of ways to compare learning algorithms, according to which there are no distinctions between learning algorithms. This second paper concentrates on different ways of comparing learning algorithms from those used in the first paper. In particular this second paper discusses the associated a priori… CONTINUE READING
