Abstract

An ensemble is a collective decision making system which applies some strategy to combine the predictions of classifiers to generate its prediction on new instances. Stacking is a well-known approach among the ensembles. It is not easy to find a suitable ensemble configuration for a specific dataset. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is a popular metaheuristic approach which could be a solution to find configurations. In this work, we propose a new Stacking construction method which applies ACO in the Stacking construction process to generate domain-specific configurations. The experiment results show that the new approach can achieve promising results on 18 datasets compared with some well-known ensemble approaches.
