Project Description

Ensemble methods are learning algorithms that construct a set of classifiers and then classify new data points by taking a vote of their predictions. The original ensemble method is Bayesian averaging, but more recent algorithms include error-correcting output coding, Bagging, and boosting. In the age of artificial intelligence and machine learning the ensemble, methods are becoming new norms, as a stand-alone model won't be sufficient to capture the dynamics of the data variability.
