DIVACE: Diverse and Accurate Ensemble Learning Algorithm
In order for a neural network ensemble to generalise properly, two factors are considered vital. One is the diversity and the other is the accuracy of the networks that comprise the ensemble. There exists a tradeoff as to what should be the optimal measures of diversity and accuracy. The aim of this paper is to address this issue. We propose the DIVACE algorithm which tries to produce an ensemble as it searches for the optimum point on the diversity-accuracy curve. The DIVACE algorithm formulates the ensemble learning problem as a multi-objective problem explicitly.
