Majority Voting</A>
</H2>
Given a large ensemble of classifiers, an easy way to combine them is with a simple majority voting scheme. This tends to eliminate weaknesses that exist in only one classifier, but can also eliminate strengths that exist in only one classifier.
Majority voting in some cases provided a small but significant improvement over the classifiers alone; combining Bayes, MaxEnt, and SVM classifiers over the same data provided a three to four percent boost over the best of the individual classifiers alone.
