  3. 3. Supervised learning is the machine learning task .  infer a function from labeled training data. The training data consist of a set of training examples. In supervised learning, each example is a pair consisting of a input object and a desired output value called a supervisory signal. Optimal scenario ? Target: generalize the learning algorithm from the training data to unseen situation in reasonable way. Introduction
  4. 4.  Classification is a type of supervised learning.  Classification relies on a priori reference structures that divide the space of all possible data points into a set of classes that are usually, but not necessarily, non- overlapping.  A very familiar example is the email spam-catching system. Classification
  5. 5.  The main issue in the classification is miss classification.  which leads to the under-fitting and over-fitting problems.  Like in the case of spam filtering due to miss classification the spam may be classified as not spam which is not considerable sometime.  So the major issue here to improve the accuracy of the classification.

  6. 6. Combining classifiers makes the use of some weak classifiers and combining such classifier gives a strong classifier. Combining Classifiers

  8. 8. Bagging (Bootstrap aggregating) operates using bootstrap sampling. Given a training data set D containing m examples, bootstrap sampling draws a sample of training examples, Di, by selecting m examples uniformly at random with replacement from D. The replacement means that examples may be repeated in Di. Bagging

  10. 10. Training Phase Initialize the parameters D={Ф} h=the number of classification For k=1 to h Take a bootstrap sample Sk from training set S Build the classifier Dk using Sk as training set D=DUDi Return D Classification Phase Run D1,D2,………..Dk on the input k The class with maximum number of vote is choosen as the label for X. Bagging Algorithm
  11. 11. Boosting has been a very successful technique for solving the two-class classification problem. It was first introduced by Freund & Schapire (1997), with their AdaBoost algorithm . Rather than just combining the isolated classifiers boosting use the mechanism of increasing the weights of misclassified data in preceding classifiers. A weak learner is defined to be a classifier which is only slightly correlated with the true classification. In contrast, a strong learner is a classifier that is arbitrarily well- correlated with the true classification.
