This chapter investigates a specific ensemble learning approach by negative correlation learning (NCL) [21–23]. NCL is an ensemble learning algorithm which considers the cooperation and interaction among the ensemble members. NCL introduces a correlation penalty term into the cost function of each individual learner so that each learner minimizes its mean-square-error (MSE) error together with the correlation with other ensemble members.
