In science:

In a recent paper (Turney, 1993), a general theory of error in cross-validation testing of algorithms for predicting real-valued attributes is presented. 1 Section 2 of this paper extends the theory of Turney (1993) to algorithms for predicting boolean-valued attributes.
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
This section shows that cross-validation error has two components: error on the training set and sensitivity to noise. Error on the training set is commonly used as a measure of accuracy (Fraser, 1976). Turney (1990) introduces a formal definition of stability as a measure of the sensitivity of algorithms to noise.
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
Section 6 compares the work presented here with related work. The most closely related work is Turney (1993), which first introduced many of the concepts used here.
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
There are interesting differences, which arise because Turney (1993) involves real-valued attributes and classes, while this paper involves boolean-valued attributes and classes.
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
This theory is closely related to Akaike Information Criterion statistics (Sakamoto et al., 1986), as is discussed elsewhere (Turney, 1993). There is also an interesting connection with some prior work in nearest neighbor pattern classification (Cover & Hart, 1967).
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
The inputs could just as well be real numbers, so that f maps from to it is necessary to assume that the output is boolean. If the output is real-valued, then we may turn to the analysis in Turney (1993).
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
These theorems are variations on theorems that first appeared in Turney (1993).
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
The difference is that the theorems in Turney (1993) cover real-valued variables, while the theorems here cover boolean-valued variables. A comparison will show that there are interesting contrasts between the continuous case and the discrete case.
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
It is also discussed in more depth in Turney (1993).
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
Turney (1993) discusses real-valued outputs (and real-valued noise vectors).
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
Related Work This work is most closely related to Turney (1993), which presents a general theory of cross-validation error for algorithms that predict real-valued attributes.
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
The theory is then applied to linear regression and instance-based learning. The theory of cross-validation error for algorithms that predict boolean-valued attributes, presented in Section 2, is similar to the theory for real-valued attributes (Turney, 1993), but there are some differences.
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
Turney (1993) also examined the cross-validation error of instance-based learning with k nearest neighbors.
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
Turney (1993) proves that averaging, in the best case, improves stability and, in the worst case, does not affect stability (Theorem 10 in (Turney, 1993)).
Theoretical Analyses of Cross-Validation Error and Voting in Instance-Based Learning
Akaike uses the same approach to define mean expected log likelihood (Sakamoto et al., 1986). For a more thorough comparison of the approach described here with AIC, see Turney (1993).
