Benchmarking the n-tuple classifier with statlog dataset


The n-tuple recognition method was tested on 11 large real-world data sets and its performance compared to 23 other classification algorithms. On 7 of these, the results show no systematic performance gap between the n-tuple method and the others. Evidence was found to support a possible explanation for why the n-tuple method yields poor results for certain datasets. Preliminary empirical results of a study of the confidence interval (the difference between the two highest scores) are also reported. These suggest a counter-intuitive correlation between the confidence interval distribution and the overall classification performance of the system.
