Learning iteratively a classifier with the Bayesian Model Averaging Principlestar
This is the latest version of this eprint.
We present a learning algorithm for nominal vector data. It builds a complex classifier by adding iteratively a simple function that modifies the current classifier. In order to limit overtraining problem we focus on a class of such functions for which optimal Bayesian learning is tractable. We investigate a few classes of functions that yield to models that are similar to Naı¨ve Bayes and logistic classification. We report experimental results for a collection of standard data sets that show that our learning algorithm outperforms standard learning of such these standard models.
