Multiple Classifier Systems are nowadays one of the most promising directions in pattern recognition. There are many methods of decision making by the ensemble of classifiers. The most popular are methods that have their origin in voting method, where the decision of the common classifier is a combination of individual classifiers’ outputs. This work presents comparative analysis of some classifier fusion methods based on weighted voting of classifiers’ responses and combination of classifiers’ discriminant functions. We discus which of presented methods could produce classifier better than Oracle one. Some results of computer experiments carried out on benchmark and computer generated data which confirmed our studies are presented also.
