Hey all - I'm a newbie so please excuse what may be a stupid question.  I'm trying to put together a simple test of an Ensemble Learning system using Adaboost.  Here's what I've got so far:

I get an error on the Vote module which is asking for a Base Learner - but I'm not clear on what a Base Learner would be for a Vote.  I'm sure it'll seem obvious when I see it but I'm stuck so far.

Any help greatly appreciated!

    Hi inthewoods,

    you missed to put some modeling operators into the Voting meta learner. Eg. you could but a Naaive Bayes, Decision Stump and a k-NN inside and let them vote.

    Take a look into the RM help http://rapid-i.com/wiki/index.php?title=Vote

    However, it seems to me a little bit odd to perform a AdaBoost on a Voting Meta Learner since the AdaBoost needs a lerner which can process attribute weights:


    I hope I could help,

    Ciao Sebastian
