Questions tagged [ensemble-learning]

For questions related to ensemble learning, which refers to machine learning techniques where multiple models (e.g. a neural network and a decision tree) are trained and their predictions are combined to solve the same problem. Bagging and boosting are two popular ensemble learning techniques.

How do I take the correct classification predictions of an ml algo (i.e. random forest/neural net) and sort the instances in each category?

I am trying to sort the instances within each of 5 classification categories in a dataset that has been put through both a random forest classifier and a neural network with 99% accuracy on each. ...

Does it make sense to combine classifiers trained on the same dataset?

I am working on a classification problem. I have a dataset $S$ and I am training several prediction algorithms using S: Naive Bayes, SVM, classification trees. Intuitively, I was planning to combine ...

How to make an LSTM ensemble model with different input shapes

This is what I got so far for making an lstm ensemble with one model input for each of the lstm models and for the ensemble model and it works perfectly. ...

How to make an ensemble model of two LSTM models with different window sizes i.e. different data shapes

Below is the Python code for making an ensemble model. All the inputs are the same for all three models. But what if the models have different input shapes due to different window size, such as LSTM ...

When do two identical neural networks have uncorrelated errors?

In Chapter 9, section 9.1.6, Raul Rojas describes how committees of networks can reduce the prediction error by training N identical neural networks and averaging the results. If $f_i$ are the ...

What ensemble methods are used in the state-of-the-art models?

What ensemble methods are used in the state-of-the-art models? When I surveyed the state-of-the-art methods of classification and detection, e.g. ImageNet, COCO, etc., I noticed that are few or even ...

Would performance of atomic models matter in ensemble methods?

Suppose I have two fitted ensemble models $F_1 := (f_1, f_2, f_3, \cdots f_n)$ and $G_1 := (g_1, g_2, g_3, \cdots g_n)$. And they were using the same ensemble methods (boosting or bagging). And I am ...

Why don't ensembling, bagging and boosting help to improve accuracy of Naive bayes classifier?

You might think to apply some classifier combination techniques like ensembling, bagging and boosting but these methods would not help. Actually, “ensembling, boosting, bagging” won’t help since their ...
