Abstract---Learners based on different paradigms can
be combined for improved accuracy. Each learning
method assumes a certain model that comes with a set
of assumptions which may lead to error if the assump­
tions do not hold. Learning is an ill­posed problem and
with finite data each algorithm converges to a different
solution and fails under different circumstances. Our pre­
vious experience with statistical and neural classifiers was
that classifiers based on these paradigms do generalize dif­
ferently, fail on different patterns and to a certain extent
complement each other and thus we look for ways to com­
bine them for higher accuracy. One way to get comple­
mentary classifiers is by using different input representa­
