- We review accuracy estimation methods and compare the two most common methods: cross-validation and bootstrap. Recent experimental results on artificial data and theoretical results in restricted settings have shown that for selecting a good classifier from a set of classifiers (model selection), ten-fold cross-validation may be better than the more expensive leave-one-out cross-validation. We report on a large-scale experiment --- over half a million runs of C4.5 Algorithm and a Naive-Bayes algorithm --- to estimate the effects of different parameters on these algorithms on real-world datasets. For cross-validation, we vary the number of folds and whether the folds are stratified or not; for bootstrap, we vary the number of bootstrap samples. Our results indicate that for real-world datasets similar to ours, the best method to use for model selection is ten-fold stratified cross validation, even if computation power allows using more folds.
- A classifier is a function that maps an unlabelled instance to a label using internal data structures. An inducer or an induction algorithm builds a classifier from a given dataset. CART and C4.5 (Brennan, Friedman Olshen &. Stone 1984, Quinlan 1993) are decision tree inducers that build decision tree classifiers. In this paper we are not interested in the specific method for inducing classifiers, but assume access to a dataset and an inducer of interest.
