Abstract




Meta decision trees (MDTs) are a method for combining multiple classifiers. We present an integration of the algorithm MLC4.5 for learning MDTs into the Weka data mining suite. We compare classifier ensembles combined with MDTs to bagged and boosted decision trees, and to classifier ensembles combined with other methods: voting, grading, multi-scheme and stacking with multi-response linear regression.
