The dataset provides 290 annual observations for the 29 Chinese provinces for the period 1985 --

For example, two of the low-EC datasets, blackjack and labor are so tolerant of noise that when 50% random class noise is added to the training set (i.e., the class value is replaced with a randomly selected valid value 50% of the

the minimum of AdaBoost's test error and the minimum of the normalized sigmoid cost very nearly coincide. In the labor data set AdaBoost's test error converges and overfitting does not occur. For this data set both the normalized sigmoid cost and the exponential cost converge. In the vote1 data set AdaBoost initially

The results of these experiments are similar to those obtained using the nearest neighbor methods, and produce significant gains for two other data sets labor and ionosphere). Together, these experiments indicate that the overall RegionBoost approach can produce significant gains for many (though not all) data sets. One question which might be

For these data sets, under-sampling combined with C4.5 is a useful baseline to evaluate other algorithms. Over-sampling, on the other hand, is not to
