Undoubtedly, the test set also contains observations that are misclassified. In a final attempt to improve boosting’s predictive ability, we have run Real AdaBoost on the test set and have removed the highest weighted observations. 12). 9. 9 demonstrates that the misclassification error rates on this set are noticeably lower than on the original test set. While boosting does not significantly reduce test set classification error across iterations for this example, it does allow the user to identify difficult-to-classify, or possibly misclassified observations.

While both approaches are sometimes successful in identifying class structure, the dimension reduction step was not focused on the ultimate goal of discrimination. Of course, PCA is not the only option for collinear data. Ridging or “shrinkage” can be employed to stabilize the pertinent covariance matrices so that the classical discrimination paradigms might be implemented (Friedman, 1989; Rayens, 1990; Rayens and Greene, 34 Pharmaceutical Statistics Using SAS: A Practical Guide 1991; Greene and Rayens, 1989).
