The experimental community corrupts the researcher

Experimentation is a valuable tool in computer science. Random experimentation is, however, a danger. This post examines current research practices and casts doubt on their benefits. Inspired by the French writer Rousseau (1972)—society corrupts the individual—, my conviction is that the experimental community corrupts the researcher. The scientific method has evolved throughout the centuries, and […] Continue reading

Data complexity in supervised learning

My thesis, Data complexity in supervised learning: A far reaching implication, is finally available online. This thesis takes a close view of data complexity and its role shaping the behaviour of machine learning techniques in supervised learning and explores the generation of synthetic data sets through complexity estimates. The work has been built upon four […] Continue reading

DCoL: New release v1.1

A new version of the data complexity library (DCoL) in C++ is available at http://dcol.sourceforge.net/. DCoL provides the implementation of a set of measures designed to characterize the apparent complexity of data sets for supervised learning, which were originally proposed by Ho and Basu (2002). More specifically, the implemented measures focus on the complexity of […] Continue reading
