Ensemble Classifiers

About This Research

The objective of this research project is to investigate the reasons for using ensembles of classifiers. It will examine scientific research data from both Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the social sciences. 

In the social sciences, ensemble classification is usually called "group intelligence" or the "wisdom of the crowds".

The goals of this research:
  • Look for interdisciplinary connections between research on ensemble classifiers in AI and in the social sciences.       
  • Describe the best conditions to "fine-tune" ensemble classifiers.
