In machine learning, Weighted Majority Algorithm (WMA) is a meta-learning algorithm used to construct a compound algorithm from a pool of prediction algorithms, which could be any type of learning algorithms, classifiers, or even real human experts. The algorithm assumes that we have no prior knowledge about the accuracy of the algorithms in the pool, but there are sufficient reasons to believe that one or more will perform well. There are many variations of the Weighted Majority Algorithm to handle different situations, like shifting targets, infinite pools, or randomized predictions. The core mechanism remain similar, with the final performances of the compound algorithm bounded by a function of the performance of the specialist (best performing algorithm) in the pool. … Weighted Majority Algorithm (WMA) google
