We propose a probabilistic framework for classifier combination, which gives rigorous optimality conditions (minimum classification error) for four combination methods: majority vote, weighted majority vote, recall combiner and the naive Bayes combiner. The framework is based on two assumptions: class-conditional independence of the classifier outputs and an assumption about the individual accuracies...
