Coevolutionary method of teaching algorithmic compositions

The new method for ensemble learning is proposed - Cooperative Coevolution Ensemble Learner (CCEL), based on special genetic algorithm. It can be used as a wrapper over any kind of weak algorithms, learning procedures and fusion functions. Experiments on 12 real-world problems from UCI repository show that CCEL has a fairly high generalization performance and constructs ensembles of much smaller size than boosting, bagging and random subspaces method.
