The Trade-off between Generative and Discriminative Classifiers


Given any generative classifier based on an inexact density model, we can define a discriminative counterpart that reduces its asymptotic error rate. We introduce a family of classifiers that interpolate the two approaches, thus providing a new way to compare them and giving an estimation procedure whose classification performance is well balanced between… (More)
